Weep not for me, when I am gone,
I?ve lived my life, I?ve sung my song.
Known tears and laughter, sun and rain,
a life that brought more joy then pain.
I?ve been content with love so deep,
that peacefully, I?ll ever sleep.
A love we shared with joy untold,
and kept me young, though I grew old.
I?ve held my babies in my arms,
and felt the thrill of their sweet charms.
Had many friends and family too,
that smoothed the way
as I passed through.
Weep not for me, when life is done,
for I have been the richest one.
I will go home, content to see
the One who gave it all to me.
