"I hope you keep me in your thoughts when I’m long gone,
and remember to keep a careful eye on the people you love.
I hope you ask enough questions and get honest answers.
I hope you cherish the people who have made a mark on you,
even if they don’t always pick up their phone, even if you guys argue quite often, even if they’re so preoccupied with life that they forget to remind you how much you matter to them.
I hope you choose to take good care of those who trust you.
I hope you make a difference in all their lives, for the better.
I hope you see the problems they’re having when you remember to look for them. I hope you find ways to solve them.
I hope you take action when you’re a father, a mother, a friend, a daughter, a son, a sister, a brother, a lover, a girlfriend, a boyfriend, a significant other, an owner (of pets), an aunt, an uncle, a teacher, a boss, a doctor, a stranger.
I hope you know when someone’s bringing themselves danger.
I hope you change someone’s life, I hope you save someone’s life,
I hope you remember me.
I hope someone does all of these things for you,
So long as they do, so long as you don’t need a reminder to take care, take good care,
You can stop remembering me."
