A Feigned Smile - Poem by Oyekake Satty (O. S.) Joshua

To see your face
To behold your smile
To take your hand
To walk with you
Or to sit and talk
Of love and friendship

But if your smile
Betrays your heart
And if my heart detects it
How can I take your hand?
How can I walk with you?
Or sit and chat with you?
