    Remember
    Remember, I will still be here,
    As long as you hold me, in your memory
    Remember, when your dreams have ended,
    Time can be transcended,
    Just remember me
    I am the one star that keeps burning, so brightly,
    It is the last light, to fade into the rising sun
    I'm with you,
    Whenever you tell, My story,
    For I am all I've done
    Remember, I will still be here,
    As long as you hold me, in your memory,
    Remember me
    I am that one voice, in the cold wind,
    That whispers,
    And if you listen, you'll hear me call across the sky
    As long as, I still can reach out, and touch you,
    Then I will never die
    Remember, I'll never leave you,
    If you will only,
    Remember me
    Remember me...
    Remember, I will still be here,
    As long as you hold me,
    In your memory
    Remember, When your dreams have ended,
    Time can be transcended,
    I live forever,
    Remember me
    Remember me,
    Remember... me...​


    "Remember" (from the sound track of the movie "Troy")
    lyrics by Cynthia Weil, music by James Horner, as performed by Josh Groban

    This stands in contrast to what his mother has been spouting the past 2 years:

    We are young, We have died. Remember us.
    We have done what we could but until it is finished
    it is not done.

    We have given our lives, but until it is finished
    no one can know what our lives gave.

    Our deaths are not ours; they are yours;
    they will mean what you make them.

    Whether our lives and our deaths were for peace
    and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say;
    it is you who must say this.

    We leave you our deaths. Give them meaning.
    We were young, We have died. Remember us.
