Think of me as one at rest, for me you should not weep,
I have no pain, no troubled thoughts, for I am just asleep.
the living, thinking me that was, is now forever still
and life goes on without me now, as time forever will
If your heart is heavy now, because I’ve gone away,
dwell not long upon it friends, for none of us can stay.
those of you who liked me, I sincerely thank you all,
and those of you who loved me, I thank you most of all
And in my fleeting lifespan, as time went rushing by,
I found some time to hesitate, to laugh to love to cry.
matters it now if time began, if time will never cease,
I was here, I used it all, and now I am at peace.
