Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
You have 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 these things from out your thoughts;
In your heart I still live on.
Remember not my fight for breath,
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
