My Day

Wear a smile for me on that day,
For once, why not do as I say.

Of course, if you feel like it, shed a few tears,
But don't grieve for me on through the years.

Just a beautiful song, a lovely prayer,
Some encouraging words for family and friends that will be there.

A beautiful yellow rose upon my breast,
That's my favorite, the one I always liked the best.

It will be a lovely day, come rain or shine,
It's the day I've been waiting for -

It's all mine.
