You Can See Her In His Face

If you look so very closely
You might almost see him smile
Through the years the tears and the empty
There's a hint he's found peace for the while

He has learned how to look on the bright side
And to see all the good in his space
Yet his heart and his head moving onward
Can not move past the gap that she's placed

Yes he once was a man known to carry
All his heart and his hurt on his sleeve
Now he hides all the pain that he shadows
So that none who might see would believe

So he smiles when he thinks often of her
But he grieves when he feels he's alone
And the joy that he felt being with her
Only melts when he knows that she's gone

Once his face use to beam as the moonlight
And his heart used to beat twice as fast
But he seldom will smile on occasions
'Cause the love that he had... did not last

I think the way you portrayed him is how many feel when they have lost someone they loved either by death or just breaking up Beautifully written :)

Aww, you portray that so nicely it makes me want to cry for him. Poor guy... good job on the poem... nice how you sprinkle in a sort of melancholy happiness in just the right bits.
