Don’t cry at my grave cause I won’t be there.
I’ll be in the breeze that ruffles your hair.
I’ll be in the sunshine, I’ll be in the snow.
I’ll be in the places we used to go.
I’ll be in your laughter and in funny things.
I’ll be in your shadow and there in your dreams.
I’ll be in your greetings but not your goodbyes.
I’ll be in your reflection of your loving eyes.
I’ll always be with you and I’ll always care,
So don’t cry at my grave cause I won’t be there.
