My Friend who died of cancer aged 32

I’ve been asked to say something at my friends funeral next week… ive found lots of nice poems on here and many people also struggling.

My friend Elaine was 32 and died on my birthday of bowel cancer, she was an irish lady, who liked a drink and worked in pubs all her life, she loved her dogs and her partner, she wasn’t very religious, but was born a catholic.

I found a lovely poem

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.

She is Gone
By Anonymous
