After Glow

Id like the memory of me to be a happy one.

Id like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.

Id like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.

Id like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the

sun of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
