A Simple Smile

A great big laugh, a simple smile.
You came into my life to only stay awhile.

At first glace, I knew it was meant,
But the time with you, I don't know where it went.

I think about you almost every day.
Try to ask myself how I let you get away.

You had to leave what was meant to be,
Made me see what I couldn't see.

I've grown with you, a better man today.
Once lost, you've helped me find my way.

It was what it was that I cannot change.
What a mess I have to try to rearrange.

This place in life that we are at now.
Would have never thought that it would be allowed.

True love was something always on my mind.
Always there but never designed.

To see you again and have it like it was,
Being very close to you just because.

All I have is good times and stories to share.
In my heart I know you will never be there.

There is never a good way to tell you goodbye.
I keep asking myself, "Why, baby, why?"

I know my love is now walking away.
I must let go because tomorrow brings another day.

A simple kiss, a great big smile.
I'm glad that I met you if only for a while.
