*fading away* 2

i will vanish someday
disappear, not to be found
i will not kill myself or die
i will just cease to exist
just like that,
i will no longer be -
a part of someone's memories
i will no longer be remembered...

it will be as if
i will just not be.
memories of me would be erased
from the minds of one and all.
people will forget me-
will not remember that i ever existed
ever walked this earth.

i will cease to exist
no footprints left behind
as if my existence -
was nothing but an illusion
rumors of existence-
of a non-existent entity
i will be gone...
no, i will never have been here
and then, people can live happily ever after.
