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.
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 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.
