You walk like you’ve got the world on your shoulder

Your head closer to the ground than anyone I could remember 

You manage to put on a smile each time I see you

We both know that’s not the true you


You sit close to corner of my eye

I try to peep and see if that smile still lies 

But I see nothing, only your head bowed down in worry

Each time, I stretch out my hands to help

But you never let me try.

I wish I knew what goes on in your head

But you rather I do not pry 

I wish I could console you and tell you everything would be fine 

But you rather act bold and tell me you are fine 

More lies, more pretense, all covered up with a smile

I hope one day you’d truly be fine 

I guess then I’d be fine too
