A Hesitant Smile…

As tough as it may have been, and may be still, a hesitant smile so gracefully lands on thirsty lips.

Just a smile, nothing more, nothing less.

A forgotten treat, a not-so-guilty pleasure, just a smile…

Her face wonders, the eyes squint, while the muscles struggle to adapt… What is going on? They demand to know!

An inner sigh of brief relief… Followed by a voice, shouting out to the world, her inner world, to come out and dance… Scaring the tears away… If just for a while…

Just a smile… Sometimes that is the only thing we truly miss yet we don’t realize its absence until it visits once again…
