I’d like the memory of me be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo with whispering softly down the ways of happy 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 the day is done.
