If I should ever have to go
Before I say good-bye
Please always know my love for you
Will truly never die.
Was harsh or insincere
Sometime the words you didn't say
Were those I chose to hear.
Don't think about the gifts forgotten
For various holidays
Your hugs and love and happiness
Were what mattered anyway.
Though I've no plan for leaving soon
When I do, have no regrets
That I love you and know you love me
Is what you must not forget.
