A Smile to get Into

I was thinking I need a smile to get into,
With all that I see I am lost without you.
Outside the winds blow, they call your name,
Everything changes, nothing is left the same.

I think of another park and one more Sunday,
I search for the words but can’t find a way.
I try to pull it together yet wonder what’s true,
I remember a face and then I’m lost without you.

I think once again but I still am lost,
I remember the consequence and what this cost.
I try to move on but the feelings still remain, 
Nothing can ever be quite the same.

As the dust settles I see what is gone,
My heart  find solace in what it does long.
I wonder if any of this has a simple end,
Maybe the answer lies around the next bend.

I toss and turn I can’t sleep at night.
I know what I’ve done and wonder what’s right?
Soon a light appears to guide me through night,
I was hoping for a chance to just set things right.

Still I search for a smile and more grace,
To guide me from here to a place that is safe.
As everything vanishes and fades into gray,
I still find peace in the words that you say.
