After Glow

I’d like the memory of me

To be a happy one.

I’d like to leave an after-glow 

Of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo, 

Whispered 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.
