The Light In Your Smile

Tommy thought to himself “I’ve had all the lonely I can stand”

as he sat and stared out a window with a cold cup of coffee in his hand

He called up his best friend Jane, said “Can you please come by today?

she hadn’t seen him in what felt more like months than days,

Jane said “I thought you’d never ask, I’ll be there right away”

When she arrived, Tommy greeted her w/a hug

Said, “Thanks for coming by, it’s good to see you, I’m sorry it’s been a while,

and I’ve really missed the light in your smile”
