“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.”
“Good night stars ... Good night moon ... Good night trees Good night soil ... We live between the earth and sky, yet we decide mostly where we are going ... Shall we reach for the stars ... Or just bury ourselves deep in the warm earth...”
“SONG can spark a moment. FLOWER can wake the dream. TREE can start a forest. BIRD can herald spring. SMILE begins a friendship. HANDCLASP lifts a soul.WORD can frame the goa. VOTE can change a nation. SUNBEAM lights a room. CANDLE wipes out darkness. LAUGH will conquer gloom. STEP must start each journey. WORD must start a prayer. HOPE will raise our spirits. TOUCH can show you care. VOICE can speak with wisdom. HEART can know what is true - One LIFE can make a difference.”
