If I should outlive you
Remember that I was
Forgetting those considerate
Times when I did show
You that I cared
Do not remember that I
Fell asleep each night with
You name upon the lips of
My heart
You must not recall those times
Of joy when I looked into your
Eyes and could do nothing other
Than cry those tears of joyfulness
As my mind would sing to me of
Past and present times for which
Life would only bring me joy wrapped
In your arms
If I should outlive you
Do not worry for me for I have
A lifetimes memmories for each
And every day that you rested
In my arms for nothing else did
I pray
If I should outlive you
