I would like the memory of me to be a happy one
I would like to leave an afterglow
Of smiles when day is done
I would like to leave an echo down the ways
Of happy laughing times and sunny days
I would like the tears of those who grieve
To dry before the sun of happy time I leave behind when day is done.
