A Poem For Sylvia.
This is a Poem dedicated to my sister Sylvia
And for all those who have lost a loved one.
YOU CAN SHED TEARS
by David Harkins
You can shed tears that she has gone,
Or you can smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has 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 to tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember only that she has 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.
