Your smile – I

Tripping on your coffee
On our first date
I hid my smirk
Behind a nervous gait
And yet you smiled

Day by day
Night by night
My tantrums grew
Your enchanting smile
Extinguished them away

Lighting up my world
You smiled
On my burnt cookies
You beamed
In sickness and in health
We twinkled

Watching me scold our kids
With motherly rants
You continued smiling

In those torrential brawls
When I cried
You eventually smiled

And now as I watch you die
Barely able to hold yourself
You continue to smile
Leaving me in oblivion.
