Smiling Through Tears

Smiling Through Tears

Memories that last forever as you drift into sleep

Our short time together etched into my dreams.

My eyes sad, conveying what’s on my mind

As tears form and fall, in unrelenting streams.

Missed possibilities you’ll never know

Unrealized potential, a life cut short.

A world you’ll never experience

Except through that special place in my heart.

Dark forces control my mood, as droplets form

They tumble as I think of you. The wasted years.

Hope, a yearning a need to move on

Each time I think of you, smiling through tears.
