All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you

If you read this, please make sure this is read by my daughter at my funeral.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

As we make our way through all the joys and pain,

Can we sense our younger, truer selves?

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

Someone will be calling you to be there for a while.

Can you hear the cry from deep within?

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

Laughter, joy and presence: the only gifts you are.

Have you time? I'd like to be with you.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

Persons come into the fiber of our lives,

and then their shadow fades and disappears.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.

I found this poem today in the paper. It made me reflect on all those I've lost in the past few years. My Aunts and Uncle, my favorite hairy child- Lucky! It really spoke to me.
