Smile Back

Come back to me for
I miss you
As I sit on my step
watching the sunset rays

Until I see your smiling face
your soft brown eyes
looking back at me
the ribbon will remain
tied upon the lamp post

Do you remember
how I met you there
on a midnight, moolit walk
all alone?
Yet, somehow you were there
as though it was meant to be

Yet now you have left me
to fight for a cause you don't
believe in
Left me alone, all alone
without you to dry the tears
no one can see

The ribbon frays
like the heart I gave to you
as each day passes
just like the one before
all the same
never changing
until the day, the faithful day
when I can see you
smile back at me.
