When I’m gone, please shed one tear,
And let it fall upon a smile.
Remember only the sweetest times.
And comfort my loved ones for a while
Then, I ask just one more thing.
As I cross the River Styx.
Say a prayer to guide me through,
Where Earth and Heaven intermix.
So I can hear a familiar voice
To keep the fear of dark away
And return me to the lighted path
If I happen to lose my way.
Ask of God to lift my heart
With beauty’s touch, anoint my eyes.
Guide my thoughts to wisdom’s door
And cradle my soul in paradise.
