Lettie Maude Taylor Roberts (12-03-2015)
You can shed tears that
she is gone, or you can
smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes
and pray that she will come
back, or you can see all that
she has left. Your heart
can be empty because you
cannot 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 only
that she is gone, or you can
cherish her memory and let
it live on. You can cry and
close your mind, be empty,
and turn your back, or you can do what she would want:
smile, open your eyes, and go on.
