When I’m Gone

When I’m Gone

by Mrs. Lyman Hancock

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’ve 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 evening When the sun paints the sky in the west Stand for a few moments beside me And remember only my best
