Smile - Poem by Lyndsay Ayliffe

your smile is like the sun, so bright and intense
something thats constant but often goes unnoticed, yet each time you smile
i'm reminded of the beauty of life and it makes me feel like i am free

    We all have that one person in our lives whose smile makes us BELIEVE that everything in the world is fine and beautiful.. It is a simple thought, a feeling to be more precise.. You captured that very feeling with the same CERTAINTY that is felt by many of those who have experienced it.. A simple, beautiful, well crafted poem Lyndsay. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    I like the brevity of this poem: it shows you trust the smile to reveal the other person's nature. Scientists use the word rictus to identify what looks like a smile on an animal's face but isn't; they claim only humans smile. I don't know. But the way these three lines weave together into an appreciation of a single person out of so many makes me feel the wonder of that simple gesture. (Report) Reply
