You Can Shed Tears

By Charles H. Brent

      You can shed tears that he/she has gone,
      Or you can smile because he/she 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 cannot see him/her,
      Or you can be full of the love that you have shared.
      You can turn your back on tomorrow
      Because of yesterday.
      You can remember him/her and ache that he/she has gone,
      Or you can cherish his/her memory and let him/her 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.
