This i choose from a list of poems given to me at the funeral directors to be added to the order of service book i have made for my mom,sorry i dont have the original author. You can shed tears that she has gone Or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and hope that she'll come back Or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't 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 and only that she's gone Or you can cherish hermemory and let it live on. you can cry and close your mind,be empty and turn your back Or you can do what she'd want,smile,open your eyes,love and go on.
