When we're in the churchyard lonely, whore the weeping willows lean,. there's one thing and one thing only that will keep our memory green. If we did the tasks appointed as we lived our speed ing years, then our graves will be an ointed with a mourning legion's tears All our good intentions perish when is closed the coffin lid, and the world will only cherish and remember what w?e did.
