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.

Id like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways of happier times, laughing and brighter sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun.

Fly high with the angels.
