When I’ve come to the end of my journey
and I have traveled my very last mile
Forget if you can that I’ve frowned
Remember only my smile...
Forgive unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget I ever had heartache
And remember only our fun...
Forget that I've stumbled and fumbled
And sometimes fell by the way
Remember: I fought some hard battles
But had you at the close of my day...
Do not grieve for my going
I would not have you sad this day
But in time gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay...
Perhaps in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the West
Come stand a few moments above me
Remembering only the best...
