When itís my turn



When itís my turn, to shuffle off this mortal coil
To move on to the next stage of this great journey
Thereíll be no tears

I want no black ties, no long faces
No sad, mournful hymns, no lillies, no boughs of sad cypress

Donít shed your tears for me, Iím not gone, I havenít died
Iím more alive now then ever I was when I walked this earth
Iím coming home

Play happy music, to send me on my way
Itís a scary journey - but I have faith - I will come to no harm
But donít you dare shed tears for me
Iím fine - my thoughts go out to you

And, in time, when itís your time
You and I will meet again
Weíll embrace, and share our memories again
And weíll be together forever

So - donít shed tears for me
Iíve just gone ahead, Iím just a few steps in front of you
You have the rest of your time - make the most of it
Donít waste your tears on me
