Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road, to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys. Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay…

Don’t remember me with sadness, Don’t remember me with tears,
Remember all the laughter,
We’ve shared throughout the years.
Now I am contented That my life it was worthwhile.
Knowing that I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
When you are walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps, Only half step behind.
So please don’t be unhappy Just because I’m out of sight, Remember that I’m with you
Each morning, noon, and night.
