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.
