"WHEN I'M GONE"
BY
MRS. LYMAN HANCOCK

WHEN I COME TO THE END OF MY JOURNEY, AND I TRAVEL MY LAST WEARY MILES, JUST FORGET IF YOU CAN, THAT I EVER FROWNED AND REMEMBER ONLY THE SMILE.

FORGET UNKIND WORDS I HAVE SPOKEN: REMEMBER SOME GOOD I HAVE DONE FORGET THAT I EVER HAD HEARTACHES AND REMEMBER I'VE HAD LOADS OF FUN.
FORGET THAT I HAVE STUMBLED AND BLUNDERED AND SOMETIMES FELL BY THE WAY, REMEMBER I HAVE FOUGHT SOME HARD BATTLES AND WON, ERE THE CLOSE OF THE DAY.

THEN FORGET TO GRIEVE FOR MY GOING: I WOULD NOT HAVE YOU SAD FOR A DAY BUT IN SUMMER JUST GATHER SOME FLOWERS AND REMEMBER THE PLACE WHERE I LAY.

AND COME IN THE SHADE OF THE EVENING WHEN THE SUN PAINTS THE SKY IN THE WEST STAND FOR A FEW MOMENTS BESIDE ME AND REMEMBER ONLY MY BEST.

YOU ARE ALWAYS IN MY THOUGHTS AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART. LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU DEEPLY
