Always Smile For Me

It was in the wee hours

long, long after day was done

that alone and bewildered

she waited for the new morning sun

as more tears fell

she remembered his words well


there will always be a rainbow

after the rain

I will always hold you

and kiss the tears away

as you smile a smile for me


now there was only silence

and it always hurt

not to know why

he had left that day

without a glance backwards

without a single word

he had left her with a single smile

a promise of a thousand more tomorrows

but one day came and went

no more smiles

no phone calls

and it seemed it rained

most every day

there was nothing left to say

she could follow his footsteps

if she knew how

but in the end

she wouldn’t find him anyway

he had come into her life

as silently as he had left it

and every time she tried to sleep

the nightmares would begin again

of her alone and crying

but finding no one to respond

and his words would echo in her mind


there will always be a rainbow

after the rain

I will always hold you

and kiss the tears away

as you smile a smile for me

I assume HP found no duplication in this lovely poem. :) Good music choice....I had forgotten that song by the "one hit wonder." :)

There's nothing more painful than a wounded heart. But time has a way of healing even the deepest heartache. Keep looking for those rainbows!
