We Were Smiling (inspired by Tinsley Ellis)

Just another day,

walking,

we were smiling,

a lasting sunlight,

I remember the day,

a golden meadow field

ahead,

our usual place,

we were smiling,

I  knew there were painful moments,

but just today, let’s keep  it,

let’s go with the sunlight,

let the smiles remain,

those are so delightful,

your smile, alone,

I remember

watching you move ahead,

a slow, delightful pace,

I could just watch you,

I love to,

love to just watch you,

move.

Just another day,

I was watching you move,

I couldn’t see your smile,

I wanted only,

to watch you move,

we were

we were steady back then,

~

A gentle breeze,

and there was sudden,

in a manner of a moment,

I could feel there was a,

some sort of a change,

I saw your smile,

but it contained,

a sadness,

that I could feel,

but didn’t know,

watching you,

I loved to watch you,

I was watching you

know that was love;

Looking,

searching for your smile,

I was watching her,

watching as she did,

walk away.

We were smiling,

on such sunny days,

I just can’t remember when.

I try to find her,

look around me,

listen for the sounds

that rhythm that was

her,

I keep on searching for that certain,

way of living,

I love the way she smiled.
