Death ~ Palisa Molefe

remember those distant memories
that you have grown to love
do not feel depressed
when under grains of sand
my body is compressed

remember my warm laughter
that will live happily ever after
the tears shed
when I learned my life would come to an end
             
remember me, for me
the good and the bad
I'm sorry
if I ever made you sad

I've lived, I've loved, I've lost
but if I should in this very moment
close my eyes for all eternity
remember me at my happiest
            
Happy, happy that my time on earth
was filled with fond memories
that I'll take with me
wherever the road leads me
If  I should die think only this of me...
