Celebrating Sissie

Love And Go On

 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 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.

PSALM 130 *

Out of the depths I cry unto thee, O Lord!
Lord, hear my cry.
Let thine ears be attentive
   to the voice of my supplication.
If thou, Lord, should mark iniquities,
   Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with thee,
   that thou may be feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
   and in his word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
   more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord!
   For with the Lord is great mercy.
With him is plenteous redemption,
   and he will redeem Israel from all their sins.
