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