Just to see you smile
Using my mind to imagine
Seems to brighten my day
Time I wouldn’t replace.
So many distractions to face
Each taking time from my day
Even with the problems of life
I can imagine the curve of lip
No hint of the challenges there
Giving me hope for better times.
Youth might be a passing memory
Our days have numbered many
Unknown are the days left to us.
Still we cannot lose hope or falter
Morning to night we cling to life
It moves us to try to be better
Leaving us to answer with a smile
Evidence that we too can care.
