Oh, smile, you who lingers in the cornerwhere you’ve chosen to hide. come out take the place
of sadness for it has stayed too long.
come out, smile, take the place of pain and anguishfor my bones have become brittle and can no longer
carry the weight
if you could just but for a moment peer outto give my heart my soul a little moment of reprieve
from the misery of struggle, from the cry of strife
i will welcome you with the warmth of myembrace and coddle you and of this sadness,
take its place
i will sing for you and play my guitarand run through fields of wild flowers,
kick and splash the waters of the creeks and
streams and if you evince with the day
the radiance of your smile, the sun willfoster from me in the same .
humbly, i’m but a speck in the multi-universes
but with a smile i fill the whole of space
