This isn't a smile full of stoke,
This is a laugh that expresses emptiness.
Is this is the year winter never comes?
The year it never gets cold? The year it never snows?
This grin is an expression of;
"Yep, this is it...this is the year."
Winter always comes,
Sure it does.
But, we've been promised before.
This may look like a grin of euphoria,
But it's just the smile of a soldier;
A soldier that's ready to go AWOL.
