Yesterday's Smiles

by Debbylyn

There's a photo of us that sits near the bed
Close by the cold place you once laid your head.
Our faces look out with yesterday's smiles
Replaced now by tear trails that cover the miles.

Remember the walk that hot July day?
We never could guess you'd be so far away.
Then, once a month seemed too long to bear
Now twice a year's all the love that we share.

Stay happy you tell me, someday there won't be
Such a great distance between you and me.
But now what I feel is hard to get through
The lonely days passing that don't contain you.

This was heartbreaking. But an amazing piece. I don't even know what to say. I can tell it's something so hard to go through, when you have feelings for someone who you're not with anymore. Beautiful write! God bless.
