The world saw a gleam in those eyes,

Those eyes which brightened the world around,

People smiled looking at them,

And they made the world go round.

But only those eyes knew,

The depth of sadness in them,

The tears that welled in them every night,

The pain that only they could understand.

Those smiling eyes for the world,

Were the saddest ones in real.

Those shining pearls for the world,

Had pearls in the form of tears every night.

Those smiling eyes for the world,

Were the saddest ones in real..

I have seen people who make the world happy; but cry to their sleep. The world may think about how lucky those forever smiling eyes are; without knowing how much pain resides in them. So next time you see those smiling eyes, just remember they might be deceiving you. There might be lot of hurt & pain in them 🙂
