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 too long 
and cherish those special memories 
to which I belong.
