"When a society or civilization perishes,
one condition can always be found.
They forgot where they came from."
"And he shall turn the heart of the fathers
to the children, and the heart of the children
to their fathers..."
When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile,
Just forget, if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile.
Then forget to grieve for my going;
I would not have you sad for a day.
In summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay.
And come in the shade of the evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west,
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.
