That Smile

I like it when you’re happy.

That smile,
I see it so rarely.
I remember
how your mouth turns up
at the corners,
the way you look out
of the sides if your eyes,
but it’s changed,
you know,
different somehow
with years.

The way your
eyebrows raise
and smile lines appear
the way the never used to.
I love to see the now smile,
to see your happiness now
instead of hearing your pain,
seeing your anger.

Happiness looks good on you
and I wonder when you’ll write
because you only do
when you’re smiling.
