He is gone

You can shed tears that he is gone

or you can smile because he has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray he’ll 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’s 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.


Very nice, but believing as I do, I will add.

You can and will shed tears

You can pray to feel his love

You can be happy for yesterday

and for eternal tomorrows.

You can hurt because he is gone

You can be comforted that it is only his body that is gone.

You can do what he’d want : smile go on and know the love you share is still alive.
