You can shed tears because 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 that she has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, or you can be full of the love that you have shared.
You can remember her and only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let her live on.
You can cry be empty and turn your back or do what she would want.
Smile, open your eyes, love and live on.
