Fill Not Your Hearts
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 for a while.
Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am 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 while.
As long as I have the love of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
