Sometimes by Amanda Hoppes


Sometimes I used to smile

Every time I would think of me and you

The love we shared

The time we spent together, the things we would do


Sometimes I will sit here and cry

when I remember the me and you in the past

And I cannot help wonder why

Your love seemed to fade, why couldn’t it last?


Every now and then

I will sit and stare at your picture

and each time, again and again

the colors will blend together and your face will disappear


Inside me, my love for you has grown

but then I remember that you are gone

My heart overflows and spills pieces of my happiness

There are too many for me to pick up

So I try to ignore it

But it’s too hard to forget


Sometimes I will sit and cry

but a smile always spreads across my face

and no matter how many times I try

I know you have found a better place

I hold this smile

and I hide the way I feel

but deep down I know

You will figure out our love was real


Then you will come back

and be with me

and we will relive the past

and make things the way they should be.

About the Author

Writing has been my passion since the age of 7… my inspiration to keep going with my writing has always come from my mother. Even though she passed away when I was 18, it is now driven by her memory.

 My name is Amanda Hoppes born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa. My writing is my every step, every move, every breath I take; It’s my vibrant smile, my saddest frown, my every single mistake; It’s my heart on fire, my soul so deep, my mind always free; It’s my life line, my past, present and future, my writing is ME.
