The Smile Of You As I Remember!



The smile I remember

I close my eyes and feel the breeze.... My hair is flying, and so is my mind....

The smile of you as I remember.... As the door opened, The smile I saw struck me like lightning, A smile, as wide as I have ever seen....

I was a nervous wreck, And I was talking nonstop... You handed me a glass of water, And asked me to drink....

I wasn't thirsty, and the water tasted funny.... But you were persistent that I drink that water...

You sat down on the pearly white couch and, I leaned in and asked for a hug....

I was talking and talking and talking and My mind was wondering why I am not stopping.

You were a stranger and yet... I dared to come to you for a hug....

Days, weeks, months passed... All of it was anything but the truth...

The joy, the laughter, the love, the connection and the safety...

Everything I ever felt was a lie...

Even in lies, I felt the truth... It's enough to put it past...

Luv
