He is Gone by David Harkins

            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.                                   
   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.                            
You can remember him 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'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
