I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after-glow
of smiles when my day is done.
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways
of the happy times, the laughing
times, the bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who
grieve for me to dry tonight
before the setting of the sun,
and to think of all the happy
memories I leave behind
when my day is done.
