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 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 her and only that she's 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.

So sorry Nadia. It really tests our faith when we experience a loved ones death at this young age.In my experience it is there to teach us something about how we make our way through our own journey. Much love M
