Remember me when flowers bloom
Early in the spring.
Remember me on sunny days
In the fun that summer brings.
Remember me in the fall
As you walk through the leaves of gold
And in the wintertime- remember me
In the stories that are told
But most of all remember
Each day- right from the start.
I will be forever near
For I live within your heart.
