Sorry about the rules,
So is this correct?

"No se pártase con sus ilusiones. Cuando ellos han irse, es posible que todavía existe, pero usted que ha cesado de vivir."

See forum rules for proper title.

partirse= pártase (3rd person, singular, imperative mood)
to leave=irse
(you) exist=existe
(you) have ceased=ha cesado
