Theme: Forgiveness

The Smile Said It All

She was now lying on a hospital mattress
Yet her smile didn't fade away.
Her eyes still had the same sparkle,
He noticed.
His eyes turned moist but smiled through...
She smiled back through her trembling lips.
He held her hands like he had never before.
He begged forgiveness.
His eyes reflected his regret.
He uttered: "Will never let you leave again.
"Will you forgive me for what I have done?"
She just smiled.
The silence continued...
He looked at her face.
It was just like the silence around.
Still and lifeless.
They asked him: "Did she forgive?"
He said: "She did, her smile had said it all."
As he looked at her lifeless body,
With a smile plastered across her face.
