I'd like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after-glow
Of smiles when day is done.
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 I leave
Behind-when day is done.
