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.

I hope you all had a great 
 Memorial Day Weekend!!

 I enjoy driving around to all the cemeteries 
and putting flowers on the graves and 
visiting with family and friend!!

Thanks for stopping by to check
out my Memorial Day Blog!

I had lots of fun putting it together!!
