Smile

There was this smile that was the sign of love,

There was a smile that was the sign of care,

There was a smile that welcomed

But seasons changed and that smile became rare.

When there was sadness on my face

The troubles around me had piled

You made the world a better place

All because you smiled

The smile was a sign of cheer

The smile was on the face of the one you hold dear

But then darkness dawned and sadness came near

The smile never wavered, in the smile you continued to trust

But happiness left the eyes

All that was left was a fragmented but hard crust.

At times you felt like crying

Life felt like an unfair trial

But you were appreciated without any lying

And so you turned your tears into a smile

Let your true colors shine through.

Alas, if wishes were horses then beggars would ride,

It’ll take more than some honesty for you to weather sadness’ tide.
