Smile, smile, smile.
My dear, don’t you cry
Because I am always here.
My heart is always close by.
My ears can always hear
What your heart has to say.
I will forever hold you tight,
Though my arms are far away.

Laugh, laugh, laugh.
The world is not so dark.
Life goes on. Times change fast.
Memories leave their mark.

Live, live, live.
As I have lived so free.
And don’t you let a single soul
Tell you who to be.
Your life will move so quickly,
So darling, take your time.
Be sure in all you do,
And it’s certain you will shine.

Love, love, love.
Let your heart be true.
Follow in my footsteps.
Love, as I have loved you.

My mom passed away less than a year ago from cancer. This is everything she told me...and everything she didn't have to. Lucie, mom, i love you forever.

Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.Will Smith
