    will your eyes refuse to open
    when there is no light around
    to brighten what you are
    when all you are is feeling far
    smile
    should you imagine you are here
    in dreams that never come
    instead of where you are
    when all you are is feeling far
    smile
    will you wake up from the nightmare
    knowing there's no other way
    to forget all that you are
    when all you are is feeling far
    smile
    could you cast away your soul
    to hold yourself a little tighter
    knowing what you feel is all you are
    when all you are is feeling far
    smile
    will you make it through today
    or will you fade away
    far away
    go away
    smile anyway



    Infrequently Soulful,
    Archival

    I have lived a great portion of my life...from afar...without a smile,
    I learned how to grow, I learned how to live, I learned how to love...at the end of it all..."I smiled"
    I now smile, near with some and far with others.

    Welcome aboard the house of intelligence, ...relax, sit back and let's have a coke...and a smile ;)
    very nice piece you laided out, thanks for caring to share.

    Smiling is sometimes the last thing we want to do. But a smile can be infectious, even when you're able to smile despite it all. Such a nice thought put into words.

    thanks

    As always, good to come by and drop a flow every so often.

    Glad to still have the old place still around, even if I'm infrequently soulful.
