In Memory of

Derald Edward Atkinson

June 30, 1953 - September 19, 2017


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 sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve
to dry before the sun.
Of happy memories that I leave
When my life is done.
