Melanie C. Campos ~ MahTame

SOMETIMES I SEE
(Dedicated to a Vietnam Vet)

There is sadness in your eyes
I’ve noticed this
As you smile
For quite a while

Happiness wishes to outshine
The underlying
Reason
From times a gone

Embedded memories keep silent
Laughing covers
Painful times
Childhood memoirs

Happiness will be complete
One day soon
Sadness
Leaves with badness

There is hope for your sorrow
I’ve wished this
Awhile
As you smile
