Saturday 30th April
When I came across this poem, by Mrs. Lyman Hancock it really made me think of you.
A tear fell.
All your cheeky naughtiness.
Your thoughtful caring and love.
When I’m Gone
by Mrs. Lyman Hancock
“When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile.
Forget unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I’ve had loads of fun.
Forget that I’ve 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
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay.
And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.”
I’ll try to remember every single thing about you, for as long as I can.
I love you more each day.
I miss you so very much.
Sweetheart Angel son.
