The Lost Smile


Where is the smile that I saw just now

Where did you leave it, where did it go

Wipe away those tears, wipe them dry

Bring back your smile, please don’t cry.


Shall we go and find it

The smile you seem to have lost

I’m sure it’s just around the corner

We’ll find it whatever the cost.


With your smile back in place, the tears gone

The delight is seen in your eyes

Next time keep it in your pocket, that smile of yours

For when those tears come back to your eyes.


To Say Sorry

Sorry, such a simple word easy to say

To regret to amend what was said

To make an apology, to say sorry

For what was said.


So why do some find it difficult

To say this simple word

To make others smile and appreciate

To make someone’s day, such a simple word to say.

The Empty House

The house was empty it felt cold

The life that was here had gone

There was dust on the windows

Where the sun had once shone.


The pictures on the walls

The chairs around the table where people sat

The sound of chatter

The footmarks on the mat.


It’s difficult to imagine

That this house was once a home

In the fields and meadows

Where children would roam?


But soon there will be life again

Put back in these four walls

With brightness, cheer and laughter

And children playing games of football.
