  11. Don’t cry for me today,
    I wouldn’t want it this way.

    Be strong and smile,
    for you will see me in a while.

    I know you miss me,
    but now in Heaven I will be.

    Do not keep your sad face.
    I am in a much better place.

    Do not let your tears fall,
    for I cannot wipe them all.

    Yes, my life wasn’t long,
    But I’m begging you to be strong.

    Live every moment as if it were your last.
    I won’t forget any memories that have passed.

    Cherish life and love
    as I watch you from above.

    As I remember all of the good things,
    I come to see I have gotten my wings.

    It is time to go and fly.
    As your guardian angel I will try.

    Don’t cry for me today.
    I’m on my way.

    Soaring through the sky,
    I watch all of you telling me goodbye. RIP JEFF…you will be missed
