By Mosiah 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 the evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west.
Stand for a few moments beside me
and remember only my best.
