Shed not your mournful tears for me

Fret not at my hour to go

Smile for the joyful years we shared

This gift only God could bestow

Uplift your spirit sweet friend

Until I meet you again

Farewell till we're once again together in Heaven


Hereafter when you think of me

Evermore will I be near

If you believe in what you see

Close your eyes and I will appear

Remember me whene'er you want me near

Just close your eyes to dream and I'll appear


My dear one

I hope you'll soon see

There is no need now to cry over me

I'm happy where I've come home to be

Here with God in Heaven

Forever and ever and ever


Be of good cheer

Shed not your tears for me


Gaetano Donizetti
