LONGER POEM 7 > Goodbye

You can shed tears that he/she is gone
Or you can smile because she/he has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that he/she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he/she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him/her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember his/her and only that he/she is gone
Or you can cherish his/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 he/she would want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
