FOREVER IN YOUR HEART
Remember the good we shared,
Take time to celebrate me.
Remember the joy and love we shared, and do not cry for me.
I know that I will miss you and you will miss me too,
but take some time to smile for me
when you are sad or feeling blue.
As you hold me in your memory
even though we are apart,
my spirit will live on
forever in your heart.
