Secret Smile

She sits and smiles
A secret smile
Candlelight illuminating
...The gently upturned lips.
She knows he knows
The source.
He sits and smiles
A secret smile
Carefree crinkles
Surround blue pools of love.
He knows she knows
The source.
She sits and smiles
A secret smile
Remnants of bliss
Still coat her tongue.
She knows he knows
The source.
He sits and smiles
A secret smile
Scents of love still fill
His nostrils.
He knows she knows
The source.
They sit and smile
Secret smiles
Memories of passion
Stolen from enemy time.
They know we know
The source.
They sit and smile
Secret smiles
New love with
Eternal aim.
They know we know
The source.
