The Sad Memories

Standard

The sad memories won’t fade away.
And why should they? The tears
bring about the person
who is missed the most?
It keeps them alive and vibrant
in one’s memory bank.
The more a tear falls, the more
they are remembered.

When I Am Gone

Standard

When my soul leaves my body and this life sets me free,
deep in the forest is where I will be.

Take up my ashes and go grab some seed,
make it some seed from a large apple tree.

Find you a spot where the sun hits the ground,
dig a small hole and there lay me down.

Cover me up right there with a seed,
let’s see if together we can’t grow a tree.

Regardless or not if a tree ever grows,
I’m deep in the forest where I wanted to go.

You carried me there and then set me free.
To tell you the truth that’s heaven to me,
deep in the forest among all the trees.
Carried by people I loved and loved me.
