Silent Cry

by Shannon Freeman

I tried to erase it, that feeling when you smiled.

I turned a blind eye when my heart yearned for you.

I cant utter those words.

I would rip us apart and you would stop smiling at me.

I wish things were different, but this is a hard reality.

So Ill just hug your picture and cry silently.

Ill hold back, again and again.. because thatll keep you happy.

Ill carry the burden and go on every day, because I love you.

And I love your smile.

The smile that shines, the smile so warm.

And I want to keep it that way.
