Rafael Pichardo

October 24, 1955 ~ April 3, 2020 (age 64)


To a beloved son, brother, father, grandfather and uncle . We dedicate this poem to you :

He Is Gone

You can shed tears that he is gone ,
Or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back ,
Or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left .
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him,
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 about tomorrow because of yesterday .
You can remember him only that he is gone ,
Or you can cherish his memory and let live on.
You can cry and close your mind ,
Be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he’d want:

smile, open your eyes, love and go on ...

Poem by David Harkins
