When I leave this mortal earth,
No tears for me please shed,
For I am very much alive,
Think not of me as dead.
Like a butterfly and a chrysalis,
A transformation in form,
For I have moved from this world,
And into another world are born.
I will stand by you in sorrow,
I will stand by you in pain,
I will prepare a place for you,
When we are together again.
Wish me well on my journey,
And turn your tears to laughter,
For we shall all meet again?
In the spirit world hereafter.
