The first time

I saw you,

it was your smile.


It took years

before you

spoke to me.


Then I wanted

to get to know

you more.


Before long,

the more I knew,

the more I liked.


You are


special person.


A true

smile goes

a long way.


A long way,

on lost days,

if only and alone.


It's not your fault

my idea of love

was damaged.


Long before

I met you,

I married.


Now, I travel


in situ,


Where your smiles

are packed with me.

And we travel miles.
