Whenever you smile I feel like my heart might burst.
When the corners of your lips do a little dance that gives me hope.
A smile so brilliant and bright that makes me want to smile too.
A smile no one can resist.
That makes crying impossible.
That makes some far off cluster of stars laugh and twinkle.
Makes the earth sing beneath our feet.
A smile that can never disappear,
Show me that smile and I’ll sing with you until I can sing no more.
Show me that smile, and I’ll laugh until my sides feel as if they might explode.
Smile for me, and I’ll be yours forever.

i watched someone i loved smile one day, and there was such happiness and magic behind it, i couldn't help but write about it. i never wanted them to forget how to smile that way. i never wanted them to forget they gave me that smile and that i would cherish it forever.

"She walks in beauty,
Like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes."

I like this its very sweet. MY fav part is when you said it would make some far off cluster of stars laugh and twinkle and also the last 3 lines.
