You can shed tears that they are gone

or you can smile because they have lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that they will come back

or you can open your eyes and see all that they have left.

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see them

or you can be full of the love that 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 them and only that they are gone

or you can cherish their memory and let it live on.

You can close your mind, be empty and turn your back

or you can do what they would have wanted: Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
