On This Memorial Day ~ Remember Our Fallen Warriors




~ 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 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.
