You can shed tears that she is gone by David Harkins

You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray 
that she’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty 
because you can’t see her,
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 her and only 
that she’s gone,
or you can cherish her memory 
and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, 
be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what she’d want: 
smile, open your eyes, 
love and go on....
