You can shed tears that I am gone
or you can smile because I have lived
You can close your eyes and pray that I’ll come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that I have left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see me
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of my yesterday
You can remember me and only that I am gone
or you can cherish my memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what I would want
smile,
open your eyes,
love
and go on.
