Dear friends I go, but do not weep
I’ve lived my life, so full and deep
Throughout my life, I gave my best
I earned my keep, I’ve earned my rest
I never tried to be great or grand
I tried to be a helping hand.
If I helped in a team, if I helped on my own
It was more than repaid by
good family and friends I have known.
And if I went the extra mile, I did it with pleasure
It was all worthwhile
If I brightened your path, then let it be
A small contribution from my loved ones and me,
Now sadly I leave you and travel alone
Through a mystic veil to the great unknown.
With such beautiful memories
That will forever be the way that I hope
You’ll remember me.
