Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow, 

but remember me in every tomorrow.

Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, 

I've only gone to rest a little 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 now, 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 little while.

As long as I have the love of each of you, 

I can live my life in the hearts of all of you. 


-Joey Beighley
