Poem For A Difficult Life, Anon

When I have 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 that I’ve done

Forget that I ever had heartache

And remember I had loads of fun.


Forget that I’ve stumbled and blundered

And sometimes fell by the way.

Remember that I have fought some hard battles,

Yet won at the end 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 shade of the evening

When the sun paints the sky in the west

Stand for a few moments beside me

And remember only my best.
