I May Be Nothing But a Distant Memory
By Dawn Elmore Angel mom-Brantley, 19 March 2006  
To some I may be nothing more than a distant memory.
My life on earth is over now, but do u remember me?
I know I wasn't here that long, but God's work for me was through.
Please don't try to stop the thoughts of me because I never will of you.
Some may hear or speak my name and vanish the thought of me,
Why is it now that I am gone no one stops to see.
I'm closer to you now than I ever was before,
I love you all just the same and will forevermore.
So, please don't let my memories slowly fade away...
For I'm still inside your heart you see,
where I will always stay.
Don't think of me as gone forever because someday we'll meet again.
Keep me close inside your heart until God tells you when.
You may be there for many years no one ever knows,
So let my memory stay alive as the love inside you grows.
Some of you may wonder why God called for me sooner than you'd planned.
But please don't be mad at him, for I'm in the master's hands.
Please remember me with love and with each tear that you cry,
Remember I'm beside you still, although I said good-bye.
