THIS IS A TRIBUTE IN MEMORY OF DENVER,
I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after glow
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 when my life is done.

You cannot see me or touch me, but I'm standing next to you. Your tears will only hurt me, your sadness makes me blue. Be brave and show a smiling face let not your grief shine through. I love you from a different place, Yet I'm standing next to you.|
