Don’t Cry For Me Today
Don’t cry for me today,
I wouldn’t want it this way.
Be strong and smile,
for you will see me in a while.
I know you miss me,
but now in Heaven I will be.
Do not keep your sad face,
I am in a much better place.
Do not let your tears fall,
for I cannot wipe them all.
Yes, my life wasn’t long.
But I’m begging you to be strong.
Live every moment as if it were your last,
I won’t forget any memories that have passed.
Cherish life and love as I watch you from above.
As I remember all of the good things,
I come to see I have gotten my wings.
It is time to go and fly,
as your guardian angel I will try.
Don’t cry for me today,
I’m on my way.
Soaring through the sky,
I watch all of you telling me goodbye.
