Genuine Smiles

She found herself pretty in her own reflections,
It had been a while, since she had felt such connection


She had got a gift from a friend of hers,
A state of art, only meant for her,
Her friend knew not how rare it was
To make a way into her caged heart

She looked at herself in the mirror later that night,
She could swear she saw glitter in her eyes,
Full of colorful dreams, they chose to gleam,
And all it took was smile, a genuine greet

Before she slept, she went to wash her face,
She looked up and met a new smiling gaze,
She found herself pretty in her own reflections,
It had been a while, since she had felt such connection

The next morning she went on with her daily chores,
But couldn’t wipe off that smile she wore,
She smiled and said thank you to that old lady by the door,
And like that the genuine smile went from door to door

The connections we make with different souls each day,
If only one of them smiles genuinely our way,
It starts a chain, with pure hearted tagging along,
And the world almost feels a bit better somehow

  1. Everything you write, i find to be exquisite. I can really identify with some of your thoughts and feelings, you capture them like a photograph captures a moment in time

    1. Thank you so much for the comment. It made my day. More so, because from our previous correspondences, I know how you seek perfection and how you look at poems critically. I am touched by your comment. πŸ™‚
