Fill Not Your Heart With Sorrow

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I've only gone to rest a little while.
Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt & given my relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now, but as I used to be.
Because, I will remember you all,
and look on with a smile.
Understand, in your hearts,
I've only gone to rest a little while....

As long as I have the love of you,
I can live my life in your heart.
