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.
