Your Smile

Do you know why I love you?
I’ve been asking this question to myself
For a long time,
And I think I have the answer now—
You’re always smiling.

It doesn’t matter that the world is against you,
Or the people you care about are indifferent to you,
Or things aren’t going according to your plan—
No, no matter what,
You’re always smiling.

I think I fell for your smile
More than anything else,
Not the way you spoke,
Or the way you walked—
No, it was your smile –
Always the smile.

I thought I fell for you
Because of the way you treated me,
But, I don’t think that’s where it all began—
No, I don’t think so –
I think it’s always been your smile.

Your smile = My universe—
That’s how it’s always been.

Now, I don’t know when I’ll gather enough courage
To come right out and tell the world
That my heart belongs to you and you alone.
Time is not what I have at the moment,
But, I guess change takes time to have any effect on me.
I love you for the way you smile—
And I’m embarrassed to say
That I don’t quite remember it!
But, I’ll say this:
I can’t wait to see your smile again.
Because, it’s what makes my day—
To see that you’re smiling.
Even though I’ve forgotten your smile,
I still remember that
It tugged at my heart like nothing else
In this universe.

How will it be now?
Surely it won’t change next time?

Do you know why I love you?
I’ve been asking this question to myself
For a long time,
And I think I have the answer now—
You’re always smiling.

I think I fell for your smile
More than anything else,
Not the way you spoke,
Or the way you walked—
No, it was your smile –
Always the smile.

I thought I fell for you
Because of the way you treated me,
But, I don’t think that’s where it all began—
No, I don’t think so –
I think it’s always been your smile.

Your smile = My universe—
That’s how it’s always been.

That slight upward tug of your mouth…
It always appeared whenever you spoke to me,
Whenever you walked towards me—
Be it a smirk or a full-blown smile,
You were always happy.
And happiness was what I was seeking my entire life—
I think my journey will end where you begin.

No matter what you tell me or do for me,
It’s your smile that’ll always stay in my heart—
The fact that you’re happy…
So, I request you:
Please stay that way,
Whether we end up together or not.

After all,
Your smile = My universe—
That’s my motto.
I hope it’s yours, too.
