Something I wrote in English class. Comments are more than welcomed, as is criticism.

Cast away sorrow, love,
today is ever-lasting.
Toss away your burdens, love,
and see the world again.
What happened to your faith, love?
It used to make you strong.
Life used to excite you, dear,
but now you barely smile.
I miss the way you used to be,
when the laughter reached your eyes.
Please wipe away those tears, darling,
and let your green eyes shine.
I know you're tired and alone, dear,
but for my please stand up tall.
You brought me joy and peace, hon.
Now let me do the same
Cast away your sorrows, love,
and ever-lasting is today.
