Send me no flowers when I'm gone,
Buy no gifts today
Just come and sit a while,
And tell me everything's OK
I don't need jewels or exotic gifts
Perfume and candy too.
A few minutes of your time
Is all I want from you
A phone call for no reason
Just to say you care,
It is so good to know
That you will always be there
Send me no flowers when I'm gone,
Just a smile and a hug today
Maybe a posie from the garden
As you walk along this way...
