Tears of Joy
Cry tears of joy if you cry for me
For I'm content now, at peace, pain free
Simple and honest I lived my life
Fighting hardship, denying strife.
A thousand good times we have shared
a thousand friends for whom I cared
Sweet memories I shall take with me
now smile for me for I'm home free
And do remember I'll be here waiting
