Should you go first and I remain, to walk the road alone. Go live in memories garden dear, with happy times we’ve known. We’ve known so much of happiness; we’ve had our cup of joy. And memory is one gift of God that death cannot destroy. Walk slowly down that long lone path, that I may walk the same. For some day down that lonely road, you’ll hear me call your name.
