Smile Lyrics

by Terri Clark

She packed my lunch up in a box
For my first day of school
I said I wish you could go with me today
She said you're gonna be alright
Just like I promised you
Just remember any time you feel afraid

I want you to smile
And know you're not alone
Dry those little eyes
I'll be here when you come home

I'm always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It's only for a while
So I want you to smile

She packed my suitcase in the trunk
When I turned eighteen
And drove me all the way to Tennessee
She said I know you're gonna make it
I've got faith in you
And while you're out there chasin' down your dreams

I want you to smile
And know you're not alone
Dry those little eyes
I'll be there when you come home

I'm always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It's only for a while
So I want you to smile

She fought for three long years
And didn't wanna leave
No matter what they told her
She still believed

So she used the tools God gave her
But in the end they couldn't save her
As I sat there by her bed watching her sleep
She must have heard a tear roll down my cheek
'Cause that's when she said to me

I want you to smile
And know you're not alone
Dry those little eyes
I'll be there when you come home

I'm always in your heart
Even when we are apart
It's only for a while, it'll only be a while
So I want you to smile
