Smiles of Tears


Pain and tears sorrow us
But deep down in them is happiness
Mysterious are the joys in pain and tears
This good in pain in tears is what makes it hurts
It is the smile of our tears

She cries of a broken heart but at a point smiles
At the magical times
The good feelings of having him and the sweet rhymes
It tells her that at least she has been alive
That joy called memory is sadness in the bee hive

The ring calls him to holy matrimony
After getting drunk, punches, the ring aids
Husband and wife get over it gradually
Finally he regrets drinking but to her, getting over it pains
But they both smile in this pain-gain

Tears and smiles are close relatives
Tears shared are beginnings to smiles
It is best to shed early tears than early smiles
Early smiles may be deadly beginnings to tears
Smiles have tears, and tears, smiles

Smile at tears
Because tears gives you a reason to fight for lost smiles
Shed tears at smiles to kill complacency
Let us let our tears smile because time still lives
Let’s not let smiles laugh at others tears, the pay is painful tears

Every tear deserves a smile.

It is the hour when from the boughs

And gentle winds and waters near,
