Keep None For Myself

She didn’t know what it would do

Most of her life she had been this way

Inching her way through one heart or another

Lifting others with just a glance

Even as her own smile dimmed with time

 

Sometimes the people who are smiling and giving hope to others are losing it bit by bit as nothing is returned.

(Sometimes because they’ve forgotten that giving can be receiving in its own way…)
