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 all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts, In your memory I live on.
Remember not the strife. Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
