Speak of me as you have always done.
Remember the good times, laughter and fun.
Share the happy memories we’ve made
Do not let them wither or fade.
I’ll be with you in the summer’s sun
And when the winter’s chills has come.
I’ll be the voice that whispers in the breeze
I’m peaceful now, put your mind at ease
I’ve rested my eyes and gone to sleep
But memories we’ve shared are yours to keep
Sometimes our final days may be a test
But remember me when I was at my best
Although things may not be the same
Don’t be afraid to use my name
Let the sorrow last for just a while
Comfort each other and try to smile
I’ve lived a life filled with joy and fun
Live on now, make me proud of what you’ll be
