When I’m Gone
When I come to the end of my journey, And I travel my last weary mile,
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned and remember only my smile.
Remember the kind words I’ve spoken; Remember the good I have done.
Forget that I ever had heartache and remember I had loads of fun.
Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day,
But in summer just gather some flowers and remember the place where I lay,
And come in the shade of the evening; When the sun paints the sky in the west,
Stand for a few moments beside me and remember me at my best.
