He Smiles For Me - Poem by Mannika Raghav

He sits alone in the garden
Thinking to himself,
When the leaves would shed
And give the branches some relief;

It seems it has been long
That someone did appreciate him,
He's a lonely boy,
In love, now, he does not believe;

Life's given him his share of thorns
You can see the scars on his punctured skin,
People say he's a bitter lad
But-he smiles for me.

Topic(s) of this poem: hope, love and friendship

    Life's given him his share of thorns
    You can see the scars on his punctured skin,
