she is gone

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 will come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she has 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 would want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on
