The Smile You Gave Me
You popped up on my timeline. You showed up in my life.
Only ever brief encounters, never destined to be your wife.
You waltzed-in in your dancing shoes and tap danced on my heart
Little knowing that your footprints would leave it left in tattered parts.
As perfect as the morning dew, you glistened as morning rose
Evaporating silently; no-one sees where the dew drops go.
But thanks for stopping in here, as those moments, they were bliss;
My cheeks heavy with your humour, my lips spattered with your kiss.
Memories laced with melancholy, recollections play
Eternally in hope that you’ll return, another day.
So whilst you’re out there searching, for the one you hope to find
I’m still wearing the smile you gave me. I hope that she won’t mind.
