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 winter time –
in the stories that are told.
But most of all remember
Each day–right from the start I will be forever near
