Make Her Smile
by Ame Ai
It may take a lot to take her breath away and sweep a lady off her feet.
Her passionate eyes hold back the pain and quiet the sound of a broken heart's beat.
Yet love awaits in the depth of her patience, and you can hear it when she speaks.
She walks along with head held high as her joyous nature's spring peace filled leaks.
It's clear she hides behind a mask to protect herself from further pain.
You even try to comfort her that with you it will not be the same.
Instead you only remind her of the times she lived that caused her to be torn.
She promised herself once it was over, she would never again be scorned.
Patiently she awaits a moment that makes her choice worthwhile.
She has waited long enough for someone to finally make her smile.
