Remember Me – A Tribute

Remember Me

Remember me when flowers bloom early in the spring

Remember me on sunny days in the fun that summer brings

Remember me in the fall as you walk through leaves of gold

And remember me in the wintertime in the stories that are told

But most of all remember Each day, right from the start

I will be forever near For I live within your heart

 

Over the Memorial holiday this year, my nieces and other family gathered in a Cemetery Chapel to remember and bury a very special mother and relative  – Carol McFarland, who had passed away peacefully  in hospice of end stage Parkinson’s Disease.  A retired teacher, Carol had always rejoiced in her love of music and her beautiful soprano voice.  On Sundays, I  attended Church of Christ services at the nursing home with her, my beloved sister-in-law,  where she loved singing gospel music. At the funeral, relatives sang a verse of Amazing Grace with the Chaplain.  I read the poem “Remember Me.”  And yes, we felt her in our hearts.
