Trading Dreams

Who’s there to care about a smile to share
Smiles are as easy because they pair
Curled lips can overcome loneliness
My lips be first the ones to show I say yes

Who do you blame for your attitudes
You’re trading dreams for memories subdued
And they only twist and tear with the wind
Tears of regret mix with their sly grin

Sharing your dreams in your loved one’s ears
They subconsciously turn your dreams into tears
Trading them into unwanted memories
Leaving nail holes sharpened; with a board of emery
