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 fell by the way,

Remember I have fought some hard battles

and won, ere the close of the day.

Then forget the grief of my going,

I would not have you sad for one day.
