WNL-XIV: "You're gonna miss me when I'm gone"

One of my favorite quotes in this world is this one, by Emerson-
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success."

To me, that quote means you don't have to cure cancer or end hunger to make a difference. All you have to do is come in, do your thing and leave the world just a bit better than you found it. In doing that, you leave your mark on this place. And in leaving your mark, you live forever... Nobody here will ever find me. But I will always be around. Just like the songs I leave behind me, I'm gonna live forever now.

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

You're gonna wanna hold me
Just like I've always told you
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

Nobody here will ever find me
But I will always be around
Just like the songs I leave behind me
I'm gonna live forever now

You fathers and you mothers
Be good to one another
Please try to raise your children right

Don't let the darkness take 'em
Don't make 'em feel forsaken
Just lead 'em safely to the light

When this old world has blown us under
And all the stars fall from the sky
Remember someone really loves you
We'll live forever you and I

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna cross that river
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now

I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now
I'm gonna live forever now

Dream of angels and sunshine
Rivers of red wine and orange peel blue

Dream of angels and sunshine
Of rivers of red wine and orange peel blue
Dreaming of you

Live Forever
Billy Joe Shaver, Eddy Shaver
