Remember me

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.
