He is Gone

You can shed tears that he is gone,

Or you can smile because he lived,

You can close your eyes and pray

that he will come back,

Or you can open your eyes and

see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because

you can’t see him

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 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 would

want: smile, open your eyes,

love and go on.
