She is Gone
You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray sheâll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all sheâs left.
Your heart can be empty because you canât see 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 her and only that 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 sheâd want
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on!
