Please Don't Cry

© Joe Green
Please donít cry
Iím not really gone
When you look out the window
Iíll be standing on the lawn

Please donít cry
Iíll see you again
Donít be sad
Keep up your chin

Please donít cry
Iím not really dead
When you cry yourself to sleep
Iíll be by your bed

Please donít cry
Just because we had to part
As long as you remember me
Iíll live in your heart

Please donít cry
Iím not gone forever
Iíll be a cool and gentle breeze
In hot summer weather

Please donít cry
Donít run and hide
When you need a shoulder to lean on
Iíll be by your side

Please donít cry
When youíre sad and weak
Iíll be there
To kiss you on the cheek

Please donít cry
This is just a goodbye
So please, oh please
Baby, do not cry
