When I must leave you, Please do not grieve and shed wild tears, And hug your sorrow through the years, But start out bravely; making it a rule, And for my sake, and in my name, Live on, doing all things the same. Feed not your loneliness, on empty days, But fill each waking hour in useful ways. Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer, And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near; And never, never be afraid to die; For I am waiting for you, in the sky.
