She Smiles Though She is Dying Inside (poem)

Updated on January 21, 2014

Resilient Beauty (A poem)

I´ve spoken before of a resilient beauty,

A woman,

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.

 

reilient beauty

calm, resilent beauty
calm, resilent beauty

    I love the sentiment in this poem. It is sometimes easier to smile outside, than to let anyone too close. Thanks for writing this.

    Namaste.

    Really??? Can you sing?

    I´d love to write a song,

    but methinks you are ´having me on?´´

    It seem many women really smart in doing this, to keep her feeling inside and give the world her smile even it is not what inside her heart. So sad. Beautiful poem, Dim. Rate it up! :)

    Dim,

    "She smiles though she's dying inside", what a sentence! yes.. very heart touching. It is absolutely veritable, when a deep sorrow exists in a person, that person involuntarily smiles while feeling the pain inside. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading it.

    Hi Dim - that's so sad and sweet. Not too many people smile when something awful is happening to them but the ones who do - sometimes we tend to forget that they need a shoulder too. Thank you for reminding us that we need to look beyond the smile.
