A Smile Can Only Hide…©

A smile can only hide

The words I choose not to say

I dawn the mask of happiness

So you know not of what is amiss

I can’t bear the dread that looms over my head

But more so

I wish not to see the shame

That may take the place of the pride

That you’ve had for so long

My mistake may take me away

For a time

I worry upon my return that

Our love may be no more

So for now

I carry on dawning

A smile that can only hide

The words I choose not to say
