Your Laughing Face

What I love about you

Is your laughing face

What I love about your laughing face

Is your twinkle

What I love about your twinkle

is your sparkling teeth

what I love about your teeth

Is the way they are neat

 

What I love about neat

Is your innate sense of style

What I love about style

Is how it makes you smile

What I love about your smile

Is the size of it

What I love about the size of it

Is that it fits you

 

What I love about fitting you

Is your feline grace

What I love about your feline grace

Is how it catches me unaware,

What I love about catching me unaware

Is the special surprise

What I love about the special surprise

Is the miracle of you

 

What I love about the miracle of you

Is your natural state

What I love about your natural state

Is its lucid charm

What I love about your lucid charm

Is the lack of pretence

What I love about the lack of pretence

Is your striking beauty

 

What I love about your striking beauty

Is how it’s beyond riches

What I love about beyond riches

Is that it fills the soul

What I love about filling the soul

Is that it keeps one afloat

What I love about keeping one afloat

Is that’s the wonder of life

 

What I love about the wonder of life

Is your laughing face

  1. I love how each stanza connects to the next one. Great work.

  2. Merci for your kind words. Am sure when I was writing this, that the idea of meaningful connections was floating around in my brain.
