A Shadow Of Your Smile

To reach with both hands into the day
 a humble need to bow the knee to pray
 laughter, smiles & love
 Illumination

 You sought a solution from the pain
 not having you in my arms is driving me insane
 We will walk hand and hand
 together we will come to understand

 A smile is contagious so pass yours on
 a beacon of light to a hurting world in need
 Look at the swam in the pond
 alone in it's lost creativity

 To dream a chance to unfold
 a shadow of your smile exposed
 We each have a purpose in life
 never relent to ever give up the fight

 faces, spaces & traces
 An aura of twilight for all to see
 living in the light of eternity
 Long lines formed in the sand

 Through life's struggles we can learn a lesson
 a twilight sun has tainted my inner vision
 We are all set out on a mission
 Time will tell when this water will boil
