About the Poem
The lesson I've learned in life is to live for today and make no promises for tomorrow.
Smile For Me
|by Jackie Hattan|
|Smile for me, for when you do,
a light shines from deep inside of you.
You're terrific, you're wonderful, you're a very good friend.
A blessing I was given the day we met.
Time spent with you makes my heart sing.
I love your touch, your body melded to mine, as you whisper my name.
Life has taken me down very rough roads.
Lessons learned have been all too well taught.
Count on nothing beyond today.
In life there are no guarantees for tomorrow.
Life has taught me to keep my heart hidden
Buried deep inside, protected well, from life's pain.
No commitments, no contracts, no promises broken.
Come play with me for as long as you'll stay.
Today we are together. I am happy we are.
Should the sunrise tomorrow find you here,
it's another today with no promises to be broken.
