Gina Marri Foundation

 

You can shed tears that she is gone or you cans smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray they she’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you cannot 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 and only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and live it on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn back,
or you can do what she would want; smile, open your eyes, love and go on
