You can shed tears, that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived.

          You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.    

                Your hearts are empty because you can’t see him, or you can be full of the love he shared with us all. 

You can turn your back on tomorrow because of yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

   You can remember him only because he’s 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’d want,

Smile, open your eyes, Live, Love life, and go on!
