Remember Me Remember me not for the sadness in my eyes, Knowing that soon it would be goodbye. Remember me not for the pain I endured, I felt your loving touch and heard every word. Remember me not for the time that was stolen, As days go forward the sadness will lessen. Remember only the love I had for you, In the dark it will always shine through. By Eduarda Eskra
