Happy Face

Some of the things

I tell you may not be true

but it’s easier sometimes

for me to lie to you.

There are days when

I don’t want to talk

and yet you insist

we go for a long walk.

I tell you what I think

you want to hear

not the things that

are filling me with fear.

I don’t wish to burden

you with my troubles

because if I do then I only

think the problem doubles.

Some days I need

a little space

to gather my thoughts and

put on my happy face.

The last thing I want

is to see you cry

so that’s why I think

I have to lie.
