Thank you for the days.......

You can shed tears that he is gone
or you can smile because he has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
or you can be full of the love 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 him and only that he's gone
or you can cherish his 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'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

I'm in tears.
I've lost so many that it smarts like heck.
You echo everything that is in every breathe of me, when I struggle to go forward as the losses are heavy to bear and noone is left to share the load with me.
Your friend was lucky to share so many good times with you for your happy rememberances.
