When I must leave you For a little while
Please do not grieve 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 your 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 comfort you And hold you near; 
And never, never Be afraid to die, 
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
