Farewell, Jocelyn

2007 • Posted by Kai @ 1:49 PM

She is gone

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 will come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she has 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 is 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 had want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Jocelyn Chiang, a friend of mine who was an amateur photographer, she passed away at 4:42PM, August 11, 2007 Taipei time. She has been fighting with breast cancer for six years, now she left. We knew each other because both of us love photography, and she was one of few who dare to criticize my pictures.
Farewell Jocelyn, rest in peace.
