Remember me when happy
Remember me when sad
The days of work and love and play
We had were good and bad

There were moments too lonely
And some were full of joy
That’s life they say, too casually
To every girl and boy

I know it can’t be easy
To think of all we’ve shared
But memories hold bucketsful
Of goodness – oh, we cared!
