You Are The Smile And The Tear - Poem by Eman Awad

I found me crying all of my tears,
i need some one to talk to, i need you.
That was one of my greatest fears,
to feel like this way after we were through.
Even though i told you nothing about my life,
but talking to you used to put me at ease.
I used to laugh at your jokes though i strive,
and the fire in me, you made to freeze.
Though i know i loved you so,
i never tried to tell you about my life any time.
Maybe i feared that you let go,
but some thing told me you've a life like mine.
I used to feel us the same,
but we were never meant to be.
I was willing to carry your name,
through it all, you really meant some thing to me.
You are the smile in my life,
the one i really felt safe near to.
Because of you i used to survive,
for i felt we shared some thing true.
I didn't know what it was,
you never loved me and we weren't serious.
Being with you hasn't no cause,
i used to feel this world isn't mystrious.
I felt i knew it all,
i felt that love really changed me.
You dwelt my soul,
for the first time i felt so free.
But i'll learn not to need you,
the same way i learned my heart to beat.
The very same way i loved you,
and the way i used to smile when we meet.
You are the smile in my life and the tear too...
