    I need to tell a story
    to let you know the deal
    then maybe you will understand
    "That's just the way I feel"

    Here again I sit
    I wait for you; your slow
    but nothing here has changed
    because you never ever show

    My face shows that I need you
    My mind is searching all around
    My coworkers are steady praying
    That today you will be found

    But again the the day has come & gone
    without so much as a trace
    of the one thing I need the most
    to come across my face

    By now you must have guessed
    what it is that I seek
    It's a great big old SMILE
    to grace my solom face

    I don't know why I can't
    when others do it with ease
    but smiles seem to avoid me
    like the desert is void of trees

    That's just the way I feel
    each and every day
    GOD Knows I really want to smile
    in the worst possible way

    Maybe one day I'll take a look
    in the mirror somewhere and see
    That just the way I feel
    will be as happy as can be

    A smile lights up a room
    is what I always hear
    I want to be that beacon of light
    and spread a mountian of cheer

    An attitude change inside of me
    is what will make it real
    then smiles will be abundant

    for now: "That's just the way I feel".......





    ;) :) :D

    Wow!! you sure know how to brighten up a girls day.
    I appreciate the love and if by chance our path should cross,
    then maybe I will see if your words are more than just paper fillers.

    Be blessed and continue to inspire others

    Take care

    my sistah in the shyne.

    (wavin' my hand)
    i can definite-ly relate to this peace.

    i know what it's like to have those days
    when you just can't be satisfied... a smile is a
    long time comin'... and/or you just don't feel
    like bein' bothered! :lol: but then again...
    everyone's entitled to a few 'em during the
    year!! ...the sun always comes out again! :wink:
    (thank you for sharing)

    itsallLove, chile!

    Thank you Elayne (my Sunshyne name sake)

    It is nice to know you like what I write. Coming from you knowing the caliber of the poetry you write, I truely accept that as a sincer compliment. I am trying to smile a little more each day....because how can I be "little miss Sunshyne" if I am not smiling.

    Thanks for sharing you thoughts with me.

    Keep writing and inspiring others to do the same

    Shining All Over!

    This had a subtle taste to it--it wasn't overly blunt, but it made its point softly and yet clearly--enjoyable and memorable--Amun-Ra
