With only these little creations, you make me smile

by Martin Shone

With only a simple little lift
of the corner of your mouth

With only the smallest of smallest
of little crinkles
in the corners of your eyes

With only a nothing of nothingness
the tiniest nothing of you as you glance
oh so impossibly
silent like the breath of a roaring leopardess

With only these minute ephemeral creations of you
you make me smile
you make my heart melt
you make me wonder at the wonder of it all
but most of all, you make me smile

because you are Lily, my Granddaughter
and I love you x
