You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes
and pray that he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes
and see all he has left.
Your heart can be empty
because you can't see him,
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 him
and only that he's gone,
or you can cherish
his memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,

or you can do what he'd want:

Smile, Open Your Eyes,
Love and Go on.
