Your Innocent Smile

(This photo of me, but the poem is not about me, just to be clear)


This is a piece of non rhyming poetry I wrote for someone very dear to me. I never intended to share it when I wrote it, but last night I felt God telling me that this was something someone needed to hear, so here it is.



Your innocent smile breaks my heart 

You didn’t know what was coming

That only a year after that photo

Tears seem to come more than the smile 

And your heart seems so broken 

When it used to be so full

I wish you could have held onto that innocence

Because this thing called reality has wrecked you

No one knows if you will ever be whole again

But we all know that you’re hurting now

And we all wish we could do something

But the decision is really up to you 

You decide what you do, and we will help

You’re the one in charge.

Perhaps someday you will be able to go back to being whole

But once you’ve lost your innocence, it’s gone for good

And you will never be who you once were

And will never look at life the same way

I cry for you, having lost so much

Because I’m grieving the loss of who you used to be

But, please fight another day

Become this new you

Because you have great things ahead of you 

And you will learn to smile more than cry soon
