Get Rid Of The Advertisements


The words come out.
The face still smiles
Like days of yesteryear.
People think Iím still the same.
But, something is missing here.

I say what is expected
In meetings with friends.
Most would have no hint
How I feel when meetings end.

Here, yet lost to me
Is my true and forever love.
Inside, I feel the cruelest loss
So, that is all I can think of.

Iíll keep right on responding
In words that I should say.
Iíll smile when itís expected
Because that is my way.

But, the true love I have lost
I know never will return.
Outside, Iíll still smile on que.
Inside, I can only yearn.

Have others known this feeling?
Many must know the loss I feel.
But, for me, this inner wound
Is one I fear will never heal.
