Be not sorrowful that I am gone
And my earthly life is done.
Be not sad I passed away;
For in you, my children,
I live each day.
There is a little of me in all of you.
In each new one I live anew.
So you see, I’ll never be really gone,
As long as there are children to carry on.
I have had my share of love, sorrow and strife.
I have lived a full and fruitful life.
So do not mourn, and do not weep,
For I have earned this peaceful sleep.
