When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
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 heartache
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.
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay,
And come in the evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west;
Stand for a moment beside me
And remember only my smile.
