The Secret Side of Me



Not many people ever get to see

The things that make me smile

The secret side of me

That only shows up once in a while

The creativity that runs deep

The music that plays in my head

The thoughts that keep me from sleep

As I lay awake in bed

The joy and happiness that I find

In every waking moment of my days

The smiles that show how people can be kind

A fleeting moment, that never stays

The moments that we love

The colors of the sunset

The fluttering wings of a dove

The vapor trails in the sky behind a jet

A newborn’s first sound of life

The last ‘I love you’ from a loved one

The joyous laugh of newlywed wife

The happy tears of a long awaited call on the phone
