    Intro: To my loving family and friends~
    Know that this is but the beginning and not the end!!

    Remember me for the person I desired to be
    ~Dancing freely to the beat of African drumming
    ~Singing and vociferous tribal chanting

    My fellow dancers spinning, twirling
    ~with tenacity, reflecting me
    Transforming everyone's blue thought
    ~Green feelings and fiery red emotions
    Into a rainbow of reality
    ~For when I have died and
    All have cried
    ~I want to look down from heaven
    To see all eyes dried, filled with surprise
    ~At those "Reed like" legs and thighs
    Stretching from beneath my Celestial robe
    ~Soaring, propelled by Angels wings anew
    Across the stage of afterlife
    ~Wishing all of you the peace and serenity
    I now feel!
    ~So when we meet again on the other side
    You'll know why my joy is so real!!

    Soooo incredibly deep...

    You know I must, always, applaud your constant ability to get so in-depth, sis; so, you know I'm definitely feelin' this... *pondering in the aftermath* keep up the :hot:ness...
