Wilting Smile

(Image Source: http://imgkid.com)


may her smile shine forever
he had said one day
may she shed those tears never
he had promised in a way

and now when he's gone
when the path seems too wrong
when every truth stares a lie
she still stands so strong

she shall paint her own freedom
the clouds will carry her miles
she shall hold back her heart
that hides away her wilting smile
