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
When life is done.
