“Just close your eyes and you will see, All the memories that you have of me. Just sit and relax and you will find, I’m still there inside your mind. Don’t cry for me now I’m gone, For I am in the land of song. There is no pain, there is no fear So dry away that silent tear. Don’t think of me in the dark and cold, for here I am, no longer old. I’m in that place that’s filled with love, Known to you all, as “up above”.
