Time - Poem by dean stephenson

Only for so long can that smile stay strong.
Someone will break it, don't you worry!
most probably will be a repeat offender,
most probably the one who broke it last time.

how long does it take to smile again
...
wouldn't I like to know.

one day I will smile again
I hope it is today
because not to smile today
would mean another day tomorrow
and another day tomorrow i don't want

I want the day before i lost my smile
