A Smile for You...

Breaking to pieces me a play thing
That, you ask me to keep smiling!
Glue applied? Smiling I would remain
If that would make you happy again!

Smile only? I would rather laugh heartly
For no pain now I have;
What I lost to you has been not mine,
My heart only; now you gain also my pain!
