Happy memories poems

21. “Sweet dreams and happy memories,

A love that's good and true;

A home to care for tenderly;

A song to sing that's new

Sweet dreams and happy memories

And friends to join in mirth

Some tears to give to those who die,

And smiles to greet each birth.

Sweet dreams and happy memories,

To win a game or two.

The faith to know that Spring will come,

The strength to wait it through.

Sweet dreams and happy memories,

To do what there's to do

For joy is living day to day,

To make sweet dreams come true.”

— Doris Reed Tietz

22. “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 when life is done.”

— Helen Lowrie Marshall
