The close family and the few closest friends I believe they will miss me. Like I will miss them. I have a great family and sometimes I even feel I
don't quite deserve them.
Yet I wouldn't want to leave a hole in their heart. Yes, there is pain when someone close to us leave, but I would want them to accept my departing as
a natural fact of life and go on and be happy with their life. I would like my partner to be able to find somebody who will make him happy; I would
like my children to follow my best advices and avoid my worst mistakes, yet live their lives by their own rules, not mine. I always told them life is
yours to discover, don't imitate nobody.
And my biggest hope is that my legacy for them is that life is not easy but there is love, and hope and magic in it, and they will be able to find
those things in their own lives.
Funny thing, I even have a little poem I found online and I told them to put it on my stone grave. This is what I believe and this is how I want them
to think of me.
"Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die."
