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 and 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 the sun
of happy memories that I leave behind when day is done,
-Helen Lowrie Marshall
