    Looking in the mirror
    Looking at the frown on my face
    The gloom in my eyes
    Cocking my head to the side…..
    Trying hard to turn that frown
    Into the smile it used to be.
    Way back when, back in the day
    When my days were bright
    And my heart was full
    And my future looked full of praise.
    Cocking my head, a little more…….
    Is that it, peeping shyly out at me?
    Looks familiar
    I remember that smile
    The smile of love
    The laughter of happiness
    The grin of ecstasy.
    I remember when, not a day went by
    That I didn’t hear the words
    Tasha….I love you, I want you, I need you
    Hhhmmmmm
    Now all I hear is the silence
    Eerie, isn’t it?
    Cocking my head a little more…….
    Oh, look there it is
    The smile I thought I lost!
    I remember her
    My she looks so……
    Wait a little dizzy, a little odd
    Hold on now, I no longer see the frown
    But now I’m completley upside down!

    Natasha...

    keep writing about your sadness and don't let go of that sense of humour that showed itself at the end of this piece and soon you'll see that smile....
