He Is Gone | Sympathy Memorial Male Poems

He Is Gone
(Sympathy Male Poems)

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 will come back ..
Or you can open your eyes
and see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty
because you can’t see him ..
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 him
and only that he is 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 would want
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
