The smile of wonder

The smile of wonder cannot be kept
Away from life for much too long
In the laughter a lot can be said
And there's no hiding for this song

The unexpectedly joyous day
Preceeds a time when beauty is here
And all the freedom that disappeared
Is now the only possible way

All the surprises that have followed
Tell us little about tomorrow
Yet brag about the days before
Showing off what was ignored

The smile of an unwanted surprise
Cannot be hidden or even disguised
Because it's free of previous times
And lives on dreams, and soul, and light
