There’s something about a smile
Any smile
That draws you in.

A child’s smile, especially,
Teetering towards you
On a tiny bike with training wheels,
His helmet nearly as big as his head.

It brightens your day
Just to see him beaming up at you,
Proud of his slow, majestic wobbling,
Eyes half-closed in bliss.
You can’t help but smile back.

There’s something about a smile
Your smile
That calls to his.

Kindred souls
Sharing a wordless joy.

The resulting collision takes you both completely by surprise.
