This is how I feel about you. And this is how I feel about you when you smile. Two VERY different things.
We were doomed from the start,
It's tearing me apart.
My broken heart: so juvenile,
I fall back in love every time You Smile.


“You Smile”

Your eyes are still kind,

Your Smile is still bright,

It drives me out of my mind,

That I still see your light.


I can’t give up on you.

Broken hearts never forget.

Our love was once so true.

But my mind has been set.


I can no longer love you.

The pain is too much to bear.

You broke my heart into two.

Our love is simply not fair.


But what is done is done.

We have loved a great while.

And just when I think the war is won,

You Smile.

A Smile Can light up even the Darkest of Nights.
Beautiful, sad and true, sometimes people are just not meant to be yet just seeing someone smile and happy makes us continue you to hold on.
Good rythmn and rhyming
