Maybe One Day

By: Kristie Martinez

When she is with her friends

She is so lively and happy

Never stops smiling or laughing

Spontaneous and beautiful

But you don't see the pain she hides

Those painful memories

Sleepless nights and

Those late night tears

How she wishes to be loved

And to feel so cared for

Yet she feels so alone

She wonders what she's doing wrong

All she wants to do is smile and have fun

And never feel alone

She would always love that person

Give him her heart and soul

Her friends do worry about her

And they believe there is someone for her

And maybe one day she

Won't need that fake smile
