Irene Stella Walls

Fill Not Your Heart
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
But remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter,
the smiles,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
Although my leaving causes pain
and grief,
My going has eased my hurt
And given me relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
Not as I am now, but as I used to be.
Because I will remember you all
And look on with a smile.
Understand, in your hearts,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts
of all of you.
