Poets & Poetry


When I come to the end of my voyage
And I travel my last bleary miles
Forget that I ever sulked
And remember only the smiles.

Forget the pain that I imparted
And remember some good that I have done
Forget that I ever witnessed suffering
And remember, being with you was pure fun.

Forget that I ever fell
And sometimes stumbled by the way
But remember I rose up
And won before the end of the day.

Forget to bewail when I’m gone
I would not have you weeping for a day
But on any occasion, gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay.

And if you ever miss me
Come to me when the sun sets in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.
