to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow

Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.

to dry before the sun
of happy memories
that I leave when life is done.

'For the you-that-you-are this minute, this day; Is molding the you-that-will-be, And every action and thought and word is shaping its entity.' 'It's a good thing,' he said 'To look on ahead and fix your gaze on a star, if along the way in your living each day you never forget who you are.
