Treasure Island

Courtney Wills

(August 23 / El Paso, Texas)

Smile


Smile for me, please
this time smile for real
underneath the sheets
of pain lay, revealed

Smile for me, love
with joy bought anew
shining brightly across your face
that makes me fall for you

Smile, just once more
with ecstacy unrestrained
because after all is done
that smile will always remain

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
