Choices

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

You can close your eyes and pray 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 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 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’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

    Aw, the quote on your picture is so true, currently experiencing it 😦

  2. Instead of or, why not and?

  3. Hmm, but soon thereafter. A person can flip flop in seconds/minutes in their attitude, the way they view things. Does that show that they lack stability then? Perhaps not. They’re free to change their minds, good or bad.
