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 leaves of gold

And in the wintertime remember me

In the stories that are told

But most of all remember

Each day right from the start

I will be forever near

For I live within your heart
