Beautiful Smile

I wrote this tonight - it came naturally from an outpouring of emotion inside -


I tried so hard to penetrate the layers
of your misery,
But somehow I only made it part of the way.

I never thought it'd be so hard
Because you have the strength of a thousand suns
And a love that's so strong

Why do the fears inside you always release
Just when it seems
We can make our dreams come true?

When you're awake you say it's all okay,
But when you sleep I can see the pain
And all I want to do is protect you from the demons
That dwell inside.

She has the most beautiful smile, it's like sunshine in the spring,
But inside her eyes, I can see the storm that stirs deep inside,
It's a stormy kind of radiance,
And I just want to give her peace.

Why can't I help you overcome the fears that
Keep you from living life to its fullest?
Why isn't my love strong enough to wash away
What must be a scar that just can't be healed

She has the most beautiful smile, it's like sunshine in the spring,
But inside her eyes, I can see the storm that stirs deep inside,
It's a stormy kind of radiance,
And I just want to give her peace.

Now I just wait to see if time can mend the wound,
Because it's hard to see such a beautiful soul
Wandering in the world with a shroud so dark.

She has the most beautiful smile, it's like sunshine in the spring,
But inside her eyes, I can see the storm that stirs deep inside,
It's a stormy kind of radiance,
And I just want to give her peace.

To give her peace with my love,
It's all I ever wanted to do.

Good to see you blogging again.

Sure. But for the immediate time, it'll probably all be sappy love stuff. Can you handle it?

This is so beautiful Jason, I appreciate the depth and meaning. I often feel the same way when I see those I love suffering.
