Ghost Of A Smile

I remember your ghost of a smile.
It flickered across your lips,
And your eyes followed suit,
Twinkling merrily
As you dropped your head
In shyness.
I saw your essence,
And it was sweet, pure,
With longing tenderness.
I hope I shall be graced again.

    It takes more muscles for a frown instead of a smile.
    Light up someones life with a beautiful smile. The rewards
    are many. Liked it.

    Thinking of someone who smile like that is beautiful indeed,

    Thank you both, Khairul Ahsan & Bradley Jay Phipps, for reading and sharing your thoughts. I like writing the notes to my poems, and I've only known one person who struck me like this, or at least I haven't noticed since.
