The reason behind her smile is what makes my mind busy. I mean who can’t stand a smile coming from a beautiful lady?
Of all the things she wears, stylistic dress or dangling accessories, nothing beats the smile she has when she looks at me.
I gave her a gift and flowers in different hues. We drove to parks and strolled the beach to forget the blues. When the sun came down, I walked with her to their home and when we reached the porch, I looked at her face and felt the love like a burning torch.
Before I go, I took her hand and asked her a question. “It’s late but would you tell me who’s behind those smiles of yours?”
Her cheeks turned red, and her hands gone warm. I was holding my breath, she whispered, “it is you of course!” That moment, how I wish I could stop the time.
