Behind a Smile

How attractive
How bright
This smile can be

How it lightens
Your burden when
You chance upon it!

Behind the brightness
Behind the lightness
Behind the attraction
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Most times
Behind the warm
And pleasant smile,
Hides an invisible hurt

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
