Smile.


Its been awhile since I've seen that smile,
You've always had a way of making problems shrink to nothing.

I hold onto your hands as I glance around,
I've had my ups and downs,
Smiled and cried,
I've seen the world turn to nothing,
Yet it was was always everything.

I've watched you come and go,
Though it took so long,
I finally let you go.

I let your fingers slip away from mine,
I finally did my life some good this time,
because your eyes don't lie,
You wasn't any good for me.

No more tears and misadventures,
Only smiles in this life of mine.

    'No more tears and misadventures,
    Only smiles in this life of mine.'
    Although you seem to be very happy to have finally let him go, I suspect the smile may not altogether be a smile for ever. A drop or two of tears may as well lie hidden behind the smile.
    As you watch him 'come and go' again, you may feel bereft, for a while at least.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
