Irwin Powell

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 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 life is done.
