Karen Gerard who was a friend and former colleague of Gavin will now read You Can Shed Tears.
You Can Shed Tears
You can shed tears that they are gone
Or you can smile because they have lived
You can close your eyes and pray that they’ll come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that they have left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see them
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 them and only that they’ve gone
Or you can cherish their memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what they’d want;
Open your eyes,
And go on.
Thank you, Karen.
