Somewhere Within Memory

Will you spread my ashes
When I am gone from here?
Will you keep my memory
And promise to hold it dear?
Will there be a special place
For me within your heart?
Will there still be love for me
After I depart?

I do not need your sympathy
So do not shed a tear
Just remember though I am gone
I shall still be near
Somewhere within memory
Is where I shall remain
But please forget my shadow
If it causes too much pain

Remember me with fondness
If your heart shall allow
And I shall also remember you
As I take my final bow
I leave a battered shell behind
With sorrow in my wake
But know it was not your heart
That I had meant to break
