When I Am Gone
When I am gone, don't call me back,
My life on earth will be no more.
Peace I leave you, for my last act,
I'm now beyond this earthly door.
I'll miss your laughter, tears will fall,
but look within your aching heart,
loving memories there-recall.
Hearts stay together, bodies must part.
I thank you for the love we've known.
Please know that always I'll be near
And though I take this step alone,
My soul's whispers I know you'll hear.
Live your life with courage and love,
Continue the fight you've begun.
Proudly, I'll watch you from above,
Knowing through Death-Life I have Won.
