You can shed tears that Sarah has gone
you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray she’ll come back
you can open your eyes and see all she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back because of before
you can be happy tomorrow because of before

You can remember her and only she’s gone
you can cherish her memory and let her live on

You can cry, close your eyes, be empty, turn back
you can do all those things you know she would want:-

Smile – Open your eyes – Love – and Go on.

  3. Beautiful words – my husband read this at my grandmother’s funeral and I have always loved it – it could have been written by Pash herself as it is so positive, and gives great strength.

  4. ^ ^ ^ What they said. Hadn’t heard this before and actually thought it had been written specially.

  5. I am inspired by you Sarah and Neil your husband by the heroic steps you took hours before your knocked at the gate of heaven. I have had to tell those who mourn about every other thing to take strenght in you. You are indeed a model of cheerfullness as you carried you cross and pains with a cheerful heart. Rest with the Saints.
