After Glow ( Author unknown)
I’d like to leave
to be a happy one.
I’d like the memory of me

an after glow that I leave when life is done
of happy memories
to dry before the sun
I’d like the tears of those who grieve,
and bright and sunny days.
Of happy times and laughing times
whispering softly down the ways,
I’d like to leave an echo
of smiles when life is done. UA-7387040-1
