left after

Take a moment to admire the legacy you are leaving.

This is why you sought the power in the first place. Yet you would whisper this only on your deathbed, only in the dark after you had had far too many glasses of rose-darkened wines, and you were sure that no one was listening. Or perhaps you would never say this, not even in your mind.

But this is what you want, isn't it? To know that the power is left even after you are gone.
