“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 frownedAnd 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.”
