When I Must Leave You

When I must leave you for a little while,
Please go on bravely with a gallant smile.
And for my sake and in my name,
Live on and do all things the same.
Spend not your life in empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways:
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer,
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near.
