Remember Me - Don’t remember me with sadness. Don’t remember me with tears. Remember all the laughter we’ve shared throughout the years. Now I am contented that my life, it was worthwhile. Knowing that I passed along the way I made somebody smile. When you are walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind, I’m walking in your footsteps. Only half a step behind. So please, don’t be unhappy just because I’m out of sight. Remember that I’m with you each morning, noon and night.
