We can shed tears that you've gone
or we can smile because you lived
We can close our eyes and pray you'll come back
Or we can open our eyes and see all that you've left us
Our hearts can be empty because we can't see you,
or we can be full of the love we've shared
We can turn our backs on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or we can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
We can remember you and only that you've gone,
Or we can cherish your memory and let it live on
We can cry and close our minds, be empty and turn our backs,
Or we can do what you'd want
Smile, open our eyes, love and go on
