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. (Report) Reply

What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
