In Memory

Michael J. Wilks


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 an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy 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 life is done.
