It was the smile I remembered the most,
Like sunshine – big, bright and beautiful.
A smile that was almost a laugh,
That brought so much life to the eyes.
It was a smile that could solve a bad day.
It could make you forgot your woes.
It could take you back to a simpler time.
It made you realise the simplicity of what life could be.
All that in a smile.
But even the brightest of smiles couldn’t cure memory’s failures.
I remember, I remember, but the memory fades each day.
It gets a little dimmer as the years go on.
Your smile. I hold on. Still shining. Still so pure.
I hold on as it’s all that I can do.
Are you still smiling?
I’m still here.
Keep smiling for me.
