I’d like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow
Of smiles when the day is done.
I’d like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times, and laughing times
and bright sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve
to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
Behind when the day is done.
