Weep not for me
Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night,
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears,
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now is all gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not my strife
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
