Week to week searching for the light that makes you smile.
Each day coming up short but dying to try again each day.
Then one day you stop, and rain starts to pour.
The soul that holds you hand is no longer holding your head.
The whispers creep down your spine, and the chill are no longer making your warm.
You wonder what this could be that is making you this way.
Hiding the tears with the smile that is covered with your fears.
The dinner that you are feed, is no longer enough to keep your head.
When will your mission be done, or will the heartache last?
Will the smile ever return to the crown?
The time has come for us to say goodbye.
This day has been planned for a while, and now it is finally here.
I do not know if the words will come out, but I think I have something to say.
The problem is I just cannot say them.
If I do then it would mean that this is all true.
This is no longer a fantasy I have been dreaming.
This is the life that I am living.
This is all real, and I am not trying to be convince.
What is happening is something that will happen to me.
It was just your turn at bat, and for once you did not miss.
There are words that have been left unsaid.
There are questions that will never get answers.
There are memories that will last a lifetime.
At the end of the day, that is all that matters.
I will not cry tears will only make it real.
I will just smile and know that you are smiling too.
I smiled today and there were no tears.
It was everything that I hold dear.
The train came and to bring an old friend.
We always seemed to pass each other by.
This time I decided to wait.
We were looking for each other and thought it was time to meet.
I looked and waited and even said hi to someone new.
Today I smiled and hid my tears.
Tomorrow was never today one that is not sure.
I knew that this would be the day that I would go bye.
So, I smiled today.
Not because I was sad, it just was time.
