Secret Smile

My secret smile
flowers in silence
No-one can see

My secret smile
lasts but a moment’s
brevity

My secret smile
tells of such truths
the world can’t know

My secret smile
belongs only to me
and I will not show

    Even if you don’t do these, this one is meaningful and we just want you to know we are with you:)

    Are you sure it’s not just wind?

    A secret smile must be secretive… for its wonder lie in its secretiveness.
    Now before I overindulge in the usage of the word secret, I must say that it was a quick and a good read. 🙂

    Very lovely Helen. I smiled when I read it, thinking of those secret smiles and what mine mean to me. 🙂

  7. Those are the ones we don’t readily expose… they are the most fragile xxx
