Smile

"Listen" the leaves whisper
"Come" the wind beckons
"Sit" says the grainy sand
"Think!" Yell the waves on the shore
"Wish" twinkle the stars
"Explore" says the moon
"Dance" blink the fireflies
Crickets bring the music
The moon and fireflies, the glow
I bring myself, and nothing more

Nothing more can I bring
To this wild place
That is yet so tame
I have everything to gain
Nothing to loose
Nothing that matters
All that matters
A shell shatters
A mask falls off
I let my sadness go
Dancing barefoot, on the grass,
On the sand
Tears roll down my face
And everything in unison says
"Smile"
