When I am dead and gone

please let our history be.

I never meant to hurt you.

Of that I promise.  Can’t you see?


Please do not tarnish what we had

with memories dark as night

of things I can’t recall I did

before my soul took flight.


Please let the good that is now

be the beauty that remains.

When I have left your side

let my memory not cause you pain.


And so let us enjoy this time

while we are here as one

before night settles in

and my soul leaves to meet the sun.
