Life In A Smile

Before you left
you turned back to me and smiled
I remember because
I thought to myself,
"What a smile"
it made your eyes alive
then you touched my face
the way you always do
when you know
I'm going to miss you

While you were gone
did your mind bring you back
to my love
did you hold my heart close
when the ghost of me
appeared for you to see
smiling with my eyes full
of my love for you
Is that your favorite memory

My favorite is when we lie
in bed late at night
talking about everything and nothing
because just before I go to sleep
I smile to myself
remembering how I used to be
afraid of the dark
but your love never
lets me fade or fall
with you I'm no longer
afraid at all!
