Sigh For A Smile

Sigh For A Smile
Sigh for a smile
Remembering when I
Would sigh out of frustration
As an emotional release
Opening the valve
Releasing it all
Emptying my cup
Vulnerabilities and all

Sigh for a smile
Recognizing every trouble
Each and every trial I’ve been through
The tribulations that weakened me
Somehow ended up
Strengthened me
Lavishing in all of it
Because I am all of it

Sigh for a smile
Remembering the many days
When I thought
There was no other way
Holding onto the past
Cause the present
Wasn’t what I planned
Now I see the real plan

Sigh for a smile
when I lay my head
Down to sleep
Everything I am
Is what you expected of me
Never relinquish peace
Or serenity
That alignment to destiny

Sigh for a smile
Shaking my head
In the amount of disbelief
Remembering those that fell
Acknowledging those enslaved
Calling out to the lost
And it’s just by chance
I am not the same
