When I'm Gone ~ Viyanka Moodley

If I should die, think only this of me
I am only me, that's all that I can  be
Nothing more, nothing less

I embraced life, I loved, I laughed and cried
I'm not perfect I do have my faults

Remember me for my contradictions, me shyness and confidence 
Courage, honesty and determination was everything to me

Remembrance of my weird and crazy self
As well as my caring and generous side will be hard to forget

I hope that those dear to me inherit a wealth of memories
and moments shared

Remember me for what I'm worth 
My values and personality
Not by what I have said or done
