Smile for Me

A day,
is only 24 hours,
A week,
is only seven days,
An hour's,
only sixty minutes
don't worry
the time will fly away.
So dry those tears sweetheart,
wipe the pain off your face,
and smile for me,
because you'll see me soon one day.

Smile for our yesterday,
and everything we had today,
I don't know
what tomorrow may bring
but of two things I'm sure
your smile will be leadin' me home,
and i know,
i know,
that what ever happens,
I'll be thinking of you.
so smile for me, honey
'cause you're on my mind.

Don't let the distance fool you,
you'll always be mine
So smile for me, love,
just one last time
i just want to memorize it
for when you're not near
smile for me, sweetie,
'cause you've got me all to yourself
I'm nobody's but yours.
So let me see that smile,
smile for me.
Don't cry.
Tears don't change anything,
but your smile can fix everything.
So baby just hang on,
and smile
'cause I love you.
so it'll all be OK.
Just smile for me, angel
and make the world OK.

I liked the first stanza the best.
This poem reminded me of summer.
I really liked it.

I like the way you started, with the hours, days and minutes. Good job.
