Smile at the Sun
Do you think it’s one of your prerequisites?
To have students like you? But what if they quit?
Not that I would, but I still wonder if
Your life’s like your shirt-so ironed and so stiff
At least a crinkle could show by your eyes
A wrinkle or two by your mouth and not sighs
I want you to chuckle and smile at the sun
I want it to warm you and never to shun
So guarded and safe-looking always my way
Even when you ignore me, you want me to play
But I don’t get sad ‘cuz I just look away
‘No’ can mean ‘Yes’ day after day
You once were my happiness, ‘the only one’
But now you’re just someone to count on my thumb
Don’t think that I had you on tall pedestal
Just knew you too long and so blindly I fell
I love you, I love you, I love you, Good Night!
You’re not a sore eye that is stinging my sight
Take care of yourself, well, I know that you will
I’ll see you again, so please wait until…
