When I must leave you for a little
while -- please do not grieve and
shed wild tears and hug your sorrow
to you through the years, But start
out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name live
on and do all things the same, Feed
not you loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful
ways, Reach out your hand in comfort
and in cheer and I in turn will com-
fort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky.
