Please Don't Ask

Ehsan Sehgal

Please don't open
Please don't ask
My grief
My pain
My tragedy of the past
That hurt me deadly
I have buried that
In my heart
With my smiles,
My smiles don't reflect
My sorrow full life
My pain, no one sees
Even I don't want to tell
I just smile to hide all that
And give joy to others
My smile is my life
My wealth, my pleasure
I share it without
Worries and hesitations
It is free and with no tax
No conditions, no expectations
Please don't open
Please don't ask.
