Your Smile

Sad Smile

Your smile lights up your face
brightens up any place
Lifts a heart from the dark
with your smile you leave a mark

Your smile people do love
their days happier, no longer rough
For it beams into their souls
A beacon of light your smile does go

But no-one sees that inside you cry
no-one notices what you hide
For they drain your energy selfishly
your smile you give so readily

Your smile, your energy sapped away
do they ask you about your darkest days?
The answer you know in your heart
your smile, yourself are so far apart
