64 Poems collection Remember Me The Final Flight Remember me when I am gone away, Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, gone far away into the silent land; I’m following the path God laid for me. when you can no more hold me by the hand, I took his hand when I heard his call, nor half turn to go yet turning stay. I turned my back and left it all. Remember me when no more day by day I could not stay another day, you tell me of our future that you planned; To laugh, to love, to work, to play. only remember me, you understand Tasks left undone must stay that way, it will be late to counsel then or pray. I’ve found that peace at the end of the day. Yet if you should forget me for a while If my parting has left a void, and afterwards remember, do not grieve; Then fill it with remembered joy. For if the darkness and corruption leave A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, a vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Ah, yes, these things too I will miss. better by far you should forget and smile Be not burdened with times of sorrow, than that you should remember and be sad. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My Life’s been full, I savored much, Author Christina Rossetti Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free. Author Unknown The Day You Left With tears we saw you suffer, As we watched you fade away, Our hearts were almost broken, As you fought so hard to stay. We knew you had to leave us, But you never went alone, For part of us went with you The day you left your home. Author Unknown You Can Shed Tears that She is Gone You can shed tears that she is gone Or you can smile because she lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back Or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her Or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she’s gone Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back Or you can do what he’d want - smile, open your eyes, love and go on. Author David Harkins
