I sit here in quiet contemplation
Turn my head this way and that
I see the angles of my face
Slope of my nose and depth of my eyes
I wish I had a smile for myself.

I stand as my hands fall limply to my side
Turn my body this way and that
I see the angles displayed prominently 
The thinness of my arms, curve of my hips
I wish I had a smile for myself.

I search my heart and mind as I stare
Turn my emotions this way and that
I see the despair in my heart, emptiness of my mind
The holes buried deep inside, bleeding slowly
I wish I had a smile for myself.

I turn my back on the reflection of myself
Walk slowly away from the truth
I don't see me anymore, inside or out
My emotions hang by threads, I'd rather not feel
I wish I had a smile for myself.

    A smile for you it shall be.. :o) A bit sad,but very well written.. So with this smile that I'm sending to you..It will take away the sad feelings,that are making you blue..For we all need a smile at some point in the day..To chase away the sad feelings,and keep them at bay.. (Big)SMILE :o) How's that?
