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 love that you shared.
You can turn your back on Tomorrow,
And live yesterday.
You can remember her and only she is 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 would have wanted, smile,
Open your eyes, love, and go on.
