"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou

If I were to die, what would it matter?
What would it matter to me?
In my life, I see a picture that no one else sees
But me. I see it clearly and it’s
not even worth it to try and complete it
To try to complete it is

If I were to die, how would I go down?
To take my life from a bullet or a crown
Does anyone cry when they’re not alone
But me? I shed a warm, old tear and it’s
not what I needed, not what I wanted
Asking for forgiveness is not

If I were to die, I want you to carry on
Will you remember who I was?

I wanted to write a short song that was simple enough of a message to get across.
