Smile

A smile.
Something that lights up a face
Like dandelions seeds as a gust of wind blows
Or the delight of watching a child grow.
I spread my arms out.
An energy that is so utterly unbeknownst to someone like me climbs up my throat.
I can not believe how long it has been since I have seen that
Smile.
How can you not shout and scream? How can you not jump up and down Once you see that smile?
Happiness is mine.

There is some great use of similie in the begining of this poem. I especially enjoyed reading the first half. Absolutely beautiful job :D
