She Smiles Though She is Dying Inside (poem)
Resilient Beauty (A poem)
I´ve spoken before of a resilient beauty,
Who won´t let life´s problems destroy her,
She smiles while she´s dying inside.
Her picturesque stature brings second glances,
She lights up a room as she enters,
And forces such laughter that rings out oér others,
Filling the room with her joy.
Yet, I know the truth of her ´natural laughter´´,
She´s smiling while dying inside.
Her love knows no boundaries, giving to all,
A gentle,empathetic nature.
No-one must know the truth of her heart,
No-one must guess how her soul´s torn apart,
She´s smiling, while dying inside.
Life is a fairground of thrills and excitements,
With disappointments along with the rides.
This beautiful woman lives life to the full,
But she´s smiling while dying inside.
Oh! Beautiful woman, so kind and so generous,
You´re allowed to be human , you know.
You don´t have to always keep the ´stiff upper lip´
Brave face,.. best foot forward,...let´s go....
Emotional death need not be final.
A reurrection of joy can be found.
A soul and a heart can learn to recover.....
Let someone in...let someone know you...
Don´t waste your life pretending for others,
You have wings. You can soar.... You can glide....
You´ll do it, for sure, though I know for the moment,
You´re smiling, while dying inside.
