by George Cooper (1840 - 1927)

Remember, when I'm gone
Language: English 
Remember, when I'm gone, the heart,
that fondly beats for thee!
Remember, when my steps depart,
the hope that wakes in me.
Each loving glance and word that fell,
when life was joy alone,
remember when we bid farewell,
remember when I'm gone!

Remember, when I'm gone, the sigh
That breath'd my boundless love!
Remember ev'ry sweet reply,
while far away I rove.
Each vow that made my life complete,
o still, o still my own,
remember till again we meet,
remember when I'm gone!
