So you must not idly stand,

Should you go first and I remain‚
to walk the road alone‚
I’ll live in memories garden‚ dear‚
with happy days we’ve known.
In spring I’ll wait for roses red‚ when
faded‚ the lilacs blue.
In early fall when brown leaves fall‚
I’ll catch a glimpse of you.
I’ll hear your voice‚ I’ll see your
smile‚ tho blindly I may grope‚
The memory of your helping hand
will buoy me on with hope.
Should you go first and I remain‚
one thing I’ll have you do:
Walk slowly down that long long
path‚ for soon I’ll follow you.
I want to know each step you take‚
So I may take the same.
For someday down that lonely road‚
you’ll hear me call your name.

Example #15

Your gentle face and patient smile‚
With sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.
The voice is mute and stilled the heart‚
That loved us well and true.
Ah‚ bitter was the trial to part
From one as good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
We miss you now our hearts are sore‚
As time goes by we miss you more‚
Your loving smile‚ your gentle face
No one can fill your vacant place.

Example #16

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 while. Although my leaving
causes pain and grief, my going has
eased my heart 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 awhile. As long as I
have the love of you, I can live my life
in the hearts of all of you.

Example #17

When I must leave you for a little while —
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
and hug your sorrow to you through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile:
And for my sake and in my name
live on and do all things the same,
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways,
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer
and I in turn will comfort youand hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky.

Example #18

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.

Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

Example #19

Remember me when flowers bloom early in the spring
Remember me on sunny days in the fun that summer brings
Remember me in the fall as you walk through leaves of gold
And remember me in the wintertime In the stories that are told
But most of all remember each day, right from the start
I will be forever near for I live within your heart.

The memory of you
And never let you go.
