That Smile

Here’s that corner where I saw you last
turning your car, disappearing so fast
you waved goodbye with your great big smiles
heading toward home those 100–plus miles

32 & Bruce Road will never be the same
I can’t drive through without hearing your name
your smile lives forever in my memory banks
that moment of joy for which I give thanks

I had nary a clue of what was to come
no idea at all that so soon I’d go numb
then I cried and I wailed such a desolate song
for a single week later, your young life was gone

That smile was the last one you gave to me
that moment in time when our love was so free
we never can know when a life will be done
we must relish these moments with every loved one
