Now I have had a thousand dreams
And planned at least a hundred schemes
I’ve wished perhaps five hundred more
Before I close life’s final door.
I’ve tried so hard to not pretend
That I know how my days will end
Ere I have had the time to leave
Instructions as to how you grieve.
Remember me please, If you do
But only of my love for you
I can not ask for some thing more
Except, my dear, just one encore !
