Think of me

Think of me as one at rest,
For me you should not weep,
I have no pain no troubled thoughts
For I am just asleep.

The living thinking me that was,
Is now forever still
And life goes on without me,
As time forever will.

If your heart is heavy now,
Because I’ve gone away,
Dwell not long upon it friend,
For none of us can stay.

Those of you that liked me,
I sincerely thank you all
And those of you that loved me,
I thank you most of all.

The answer to life’s riddle,
In life I never knew,
I go with hope that now I will,
And even so will you.

Oh foolish, foolish me that was,
I who was so small,
To have wondered even worried,
At the mystery of it all.

And even in my fleeting life,
As time went rushing by.
I found some time to hesitate,
to laugh, to love, to cry.

Matters it now if time began,
if time will ever cease?
I was here I used it all,
And now I am at peace.
