Weep Not For Me

Weep not for me though I am gone;
into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will but not for long, 
upon my soul's sweet flight.

I am at peace, 
my soul's at rest. 
There is no need for tears. 
For with your love I was blessed; 
for all those many years.

There is no pain, 
I suffer not, 
The fear now all is gone. 
Put now these things out of your thoughts. 
In your memory I live on.

Remember not my fight for breath; 
remember not the strife. 
Please do not dwell upon my death, 
but celebrate my life.
