Remember Me With Sunshine
Remember me with sunshine, laughter, joy, and song.
No tears please, for I'm with Jesus now, where I belong.
Although my stay here with you, was oh so brief,
Giving up my earthly form was such a relief.
Throughout my short life I've received so much,
Everyone's love and tenderness in each soft touch.
As you remember me in the coming days,
Remember that I loved you all in very special ways.
I'm laughing with the angels now,
and I hope you will laugh too,
Because from here in God's Kingdom,
the world is a beautiful view.
