Remember me in quiet days
While raindrops whisper on your pane.
But in your memories have no grief,
Let just the joy we knew remain.
Remember me when evening stars
Look down on you with steadfast eyes.
Remember if once you wake
To catch a glimpse of red sunrise.
And when your thoughts do turn to me,
Know that I would not have you cry.
But live for me and laugh for me,
When you are happy, so am I.
Remember an old joke we shared;
Remember me when spring walks by.
Think once of me when you are glad
And while you live, I shall not die.

So there is no need to cry.
I'm watching you from heaven,
Just beyond the morning sky.
I've seen you almost fall apart,
When you could barely stand.
I ask the Lord to comfort you,
And watch him take your hand.
He told me you are in more pain,
Than I could ever be.
He wiped his eyes and swallowed hard,
Then gave your hand to me.
Although you may not feel my touch,
Or see me by your side,
I've whispered that I love you,
While I wiped each tear you cried.
So please try not to ache for me,
We'll meet again one day.
Beyond the dark and stormy sky,
A rainbow lights the way.
They say you will not come again,
But I shall always hear
Your voice in silence and in song,
And feel you ever near.
They say you have passed beyond,
Unto the joy supreme.
But I can always call you back
Into the land of dream.
For death is but a gateway
To the great reality,
A new beginning, not an end
Of human destiny.
For love is all, and life goes on
In spite of grief and pain,
And deep within my heart I know
That we shall meet again.

I'm everything you feel, see or hear
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart
