When We Remember

When We Remember

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’ll come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left


Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
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’d want:
smile, open your eyes,
and go on.
