When I Come to the End of My Journey

When I come to the end of my journey

And I travel my last mile

Just forget if you can that I ever frowned.

Forget unkind words I have spoken

Remember some good I have done

And remember I had loads of fun.

Forget that I have stumbled and blundered

And sometimes fell by the way.

Remember I have fought some hard battles

And won, ere the close of the day.

Then forget to grieve for my going

I would not have you sad for a day.
