"Only a Temporary Smile"

Updated on August 16, 2013

"Only a Temporary Smile"

A smile is such a beautiful and simple thing to do, it always confirms that everything is going .to be alright
A smile is such a beautiful and simple thing to do, it always confirms that everything is going .to be alright
A smile is a gift to the you and the world, I think when we smile God is smiling back at us too.

"Only a Temporary Smile"

Why would anyone invest in a temporary smile

When you can have one that last for a while.

A temporary smile is here today but gone tomorrow

It's all because of your careless actions of pain and sorrow.

When I met you, you put a big beautiful smile on my face

What I didn't know that, was it would be the constant bane of my heartache.

You only gave me a temporary smile

To flash for life.

But not a genuine smile to keep in sight.

Why must it be such hard work to keep a smile on my face

When you're keeping everything else within your pace.

Why must I only have a temporary smile

When I can genuinely flash one that last for a long while.
