in loving memory
Tears can be shed because they are gone
or you can smile because they were alive.
You can close your eyes and pray for them to come back
or you can open your eyes and see all that they have left behind.
The heart can be empty because you can't see it
or you can be full of love shared with them.
One can turn away from tomorrow and live in yesterday
or you can be happy tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember they left
or you can keep her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and shut yourself up, be empty and turn away
or you can do what you would have wanted:
smile, open your eyes, love and move on.
