"Remember me with smiles not tears, for all the joy through the years
Don't dwell on thoughts, that cause you pain
We'll see each other again, I am at peace
Try to believe it was my time, I had to leave
But what a view I have from here, I see your face, I feel you near
Whatever you want to do, do it now,
There are only so many tomorrows".
