What must I do, dear friend,
to bring that mad smile on your face
Should I sing in the most off-key of voices
or make faces, that amused you those days?
You're the childhood friend I never had
the twin-thinker that I cherish, glad.
It hurts to see you down and low
and putting life on pause and going so slow
Have you looked lately into the mirror
to see those eyes gleaming
with all the world's talent
and intelligence, beaming?
Dear kiddo-friend, I hope you smile
I wish I could bring it back on your face
and erase those clouds that haunt your eyes
and get the happiness back to your gaze.
Smile, for life is yet to come
and whatever sorrows knock today
shall pause to teach
but hurt you, nay!
Smile, for your future stretches ahead
with loads of promises, success in its tread.
Smile, for we want you to smile always
as we know you that way and want that all through the days!!!
