Treasure Island

When She Smiles


When she smiles
No one knows the truth
A tear behind each dimple
Caused by father she never knew

When she smiles
There is a story
Of that painfull day
She watched him walk away

When she smiles
There is a memory
Dancing in her eyes
The memory of the mother that she left behind

When she smiles
Theres no innocence
Left for anyone to find
You see a million diffrent types of pain

When she smiles.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
