Do not shed tears when I have gone But smile instead because I have lived. Do not shut your eyes and Pray to God that I’ll come back, But open your eyes and see all that I have left behind. I know your heart will be empty because you cannot see me, But still I want you to be full of the love we shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live only for yesterday or You can be happy for tomorrow because of what happened between us yesterday. You can remember me and grieve that I have gone, or you can cherish my memory and let it live on. You can cry and lose yourself, become distraught and turn your back on the world or you can do what I want –
Smile, wipe away the tears, learn to love again and go on.
