Don't Cry For Me - Written by Beverly Teibel
For Bill Askew

Don't cry for me
Now I've gone over yonder
Remember me often
Remember me fonder.

Don't cry for me
For I've gone over home
I'm there with my Savior
And never alone.

Don't cry for me
Please don't shed a tear
I'm no longer hurting
No worry, no fear.

Remember the fun times
Or some little thing
A moment we laughed
Or a song I would sing.

Remember I loved you
And never ask why
I longed so for heaven
Was not scared to die.

I'm just over Jordon
With family and Friends
Rejoicing with Angels
Where life never ends.

So don't cry for me
Live life every day
Be happy & kind
In all that you say.

I'll always be with you
Right there in your heart
We'll be back together
Oh no more to part.

And I will be waiting
Yes, looking you'll find
Then I won't be gone
Just on the far side.
