.And that is how Wisteria Lane came to be my final resting place

My ashes were spread over grass I had once walked on beneath trees that had once given me shade on top of roses I once admired and beside fences, I once gossiped over
And after my friends had finished saying good-bye, a wind came along and took what was left of me into the air
.As I looked down on the world, I began to let go of it
.I let go of white picket fences and cars in driveways, coffee cups and vacuum cleaners
I let go of all those things which seem so ordinary, but when you put them together, they make up a life a life that really was one of a kind
.I’ll tell you something– It’s not hard to die when you know you have lived, and I did
.Oh, how I lived
