You look into my greeny brown eyes,
and discover all my emotional lies.
You see me smile, but know it means a frown -
It just seems to bring you down.
I try to cover all this up with laughter and smiles,
trying to keep you close to make life worth its while.
I question is this really fair on you?
Taking for granted everything you do.
I'm being selfish, only thinking of me.
The thing is, like you I want to be.
Caring and happy all the time,
compared to you I guess I seem like a mime.
Well known for always being quiet and sad -
I just don't understand how you never get angry or mad.
But now being happy I really understand,
throwing the horrible past away feels exceptionally grand.
Last night I discovered I'm happy again because of everything you do,
I just wanted to say a big thanks and I love you.
