Smile

I see your smile
From across the room or crowded bus
It's all I can see
From the crooked tooth three to the left
Or the overly large rabbit chompers
Right in the front
I see your smile
The sign of happiness and pain
Kindness and laughter
I can see it
It is my most favorite thing to look at
And the first thing I notice
I can see all the times you've been hurt
And every joy you've experienced
I fall in love with smiles
Because smiles tell a life's story in one single flash
And I can see it, in your smile
