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 the smile. Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done, forget that I ever had a heartache, and remember I’ve had loads of fun. Forget that I have stumbled and blundered, and sometimes fell by the way. Remember I have fought some hard battles, and won, ere the close of the day. 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 evening, When the sun pains the sky in the west, stand for a few moments beside me, and remember only my best.”
