My Smile

A smile is all I've got

When he makes me feel like I'm not worthy.

A smile is all I've got

When he decides his words won't hurt me.

A smile is all I've got

On cloudy days of gray,

When nothing seems to go my way.

A smile is all I've got

When I simplify my situation.

A smile is all I've got

When I can't say anything nice about myself.

A smile is all I've got

When my heart is hurting as much as my head.

A smile is all I've got

When my year revolved around him.

A smile is all I've got

When I don't want to unnerve him.

A smile is all I've got

When I finally leave his clutches.

A smile is all I've got

When he says he can't live without me,

When he says he won't live without me.

 A smile is all I've got

When I never look back,

Not once,

Not even a thought.

A smile is all I've got

At the end of the day

When I go to bed

Without all his miserable ramblings in my head.

A smile is all I've got

When it turns out it was all I ever needed.
