Don’t Cry For Me Today

Don’t cry for me today,

I wouldn’t want it this way.

Be strong and smile,

for you will see me in a while.

I know you miss me,

but now in Heaven I will be.

Do not keep your sad face.

I am in a much better place.

Do not let your tears fall,

for I cannot wipe them all.

Yes, my life wasn’t long,

But I’m begging you to be strong.

Live every moment as if it were your last.

I won’t forget any memories that have passed.

Cherish life and love

as I watch you from above.

As I remember all of the good things,

I come to see I have gotten my wings.

It is time to go and fly.

As your guardian angel I will try.

Don’t cry for me today.

I’m on my way.

Soaring through the sky,

I watch all of you telling me goodbye.
