Now That He is Gone
I can cry because he is gone,
Or I can smile because of the life he lived.
I can close my eyes and hope he will come back,Or I can open my eyes to see the beauty he left behind.
My heart can feel empty because I can’t see him,Or I can be full of the times I feel him around me.
I can turn away from my future,Or I can live on and honor his memory.
I can wish for yesterdays,Or I can look forward to tomorrow.
I can remember only that he is not here,Or I can cherish each day I had with him.
I can close my mind to new things, and turn my back on what’s next,Or I can live on, smile about him and keep my eyes wide open as I walk into my future.
I choose to remember. I choose to walk forward. And, I have to teach my heart that my walking forward is not leaving him behind.
Peace and Love for 2016
