Just let an angel

Jul 2, 2018 · 1 min read

Smile when the road’s dark and the woods brown,
Someday you’ll look back and see no frown.
Cry if you must but with none around,
Lest your tearspill a near one drown.
Love someone with your guard down;
Trust is the stone that builds this town.
Dance with abandon, on the sea sand;
Let the waves wash your footprints bland.
Soar as high as an eagle flies,
All that you’ve built, you’ll see: are toys,
And when you slip and fall flat down,
Just let an angel pick you a crown.
