Smile At Me

Smile at Me,
I beg you of you,
You Smile at him,
And Her, too,
But not at me,
Do I have some unknown disease?

Do I disgust you?
Does the sight of me
Make you queasy?
Do you avoid my glance?
Pretending to be unaware
Of my stare?
As I search your eyes
For that look of remembrance

I cannot stand it any longer
What must I do to get you
To acknowledge me
My being,
My existence

Here I stand
Here I say
One Last Time
As you look away

Smile at me
For only a moment
So I may be on my way
So your smile can stay
With me as I leave today
