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.
Forget unkind words I have spoken;
Remember the good I have done,
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I’ve had loads of fun.
Forget that I have stumbled and blundered
And sometimes I fell by the way
Remember that I have fought
Some hard Battles and won,
Ere the close of 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 paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.
