Smile, Mona Lisa


Take a deep breath

Your pitcher of tears

Left behind and abandoned

Take what you know

Take what you know now

And hold it close


No, it was not all in your head

Truth is truth

Step forward

Step into the daylight

You cannot spend forever

Hiding in the night

Step into the daylight


The air is fresh here

Have no fear

You can smile

You can laugh

You can cry

When ghosts from your past

Shout in angry whispers

You can choose

To turn away


It is over

It is over now

As over as it will ever be

Step into the daylight
