So I Might Smile

Resonating reflections of my voice
Hollow echoes of your name
Lighting candles could have been your choice
In lieu of extinguished flames

Thinking that I can read your mind
As if it’s something I could do
To know your feelings though I’m blind
Still thinking you love me too

Instead of putting false hope in gloves
Only to beat myself in blame
Please allow me God to enjoy my love
So I might smile at the sound of her name
