When I am 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 heartache

And remember I’ve had loads of fun.


Forget that I’ve 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 shade of evening

When the sun paints the sky in the west

Stand for a few moments beside me

And remember only my best
