You can shed tears that he is gone, or
You can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that
he will come back, or you can open
your eyes and see all he’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you
Can’t see him, or you can be full of the
love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow
And live yesterday, or you can be happy
For tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he
Is gone, or you can cherish his memory
And let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be
Empty and turn your back, or you can
Do what he’d want: smile, open your
Eyes, love and go on.
