"of course this is all inside your head, harry, but why on earth should that mean it isn't real?" — albus dumbledore, harry potter and the deathly hallows by j.k. rowling

. . .

i am

here

to stay

. . .

i am not afraid

of being forgotten

(after all, i will live on with your aid)

(after all, you are just like a son)

. . .

don't

think

i am gone

. . .

death is just a state

of being

and if you wait

you will find some feeling

. . .

i am

as real

as you are

(the question is,

how real are you?)

. . .

i am not gone

i am home

at last, and i am done

i leave you with simple chrome

. . .

and i am

here

there

everywhere

(i am a part of this universe)
