I Could Watch You Smile Forever

( I do not own these pictures. If they're yours and you would like them removed, please let me know and I will do so. Thank you! )


I could watch you smile forever,
I could watch your precious laugh,
I could see your eyelids quiver
As you tilt your head back.
I know that you won't laugh forever,
And that every smile dies,
And so while we're still together
Let me take a picture of your smile.

She tells him jokes that aren't that funny
Desperate to see him laugh again;
Even though her jokes are corny,
He's more than happy to let her win.
I could watch you smile forever,
I could watch your precious laugh,
I could see your eyelids quiver
As you tilt your head back.
I know that you won't laugh forever,
And that every smile dies,
And so while we're still together
Let me take a picture of your smile.

He teases her, like boys will do,
As though he didn't like her at all;
He wants to see her cheeks turn red
Like the leaves do in the Fall.

 I could watch you smile forever,
I could watch your precious laugh,
I could see your eyelids quiver
As you tilt your head back.
I know that you won't laugh forever,
And that every smile dies,
And so while we're still together
Let me take a picture of your smile.

The baby cries like all babies,
But his mother doesn't mind;
It's worth it when he squeals for joy,
And she can say "He's mine."

I could watch you smile forever,
I could watch your precious laugh,
I could see your eyelids quiver
As you tilt your head back.
I know that you won't laugh forever,
And that every smile dies,
And so while we're still together
Let me take a picture of your smile.

Their little girl causes trouble
In the common two-year-old style,
But it's worth every broken vase,
When they get to see her smile.

 I could watch you smile forever,
I could watch your precious laugh,
I could see your eyelids quiver
As you tilt your head back.
I know that you won't laugh forever,
And that every smile dies,
And so while we're still together
Let me take a picture of your smile.

  2. Thanks, Naina! But are you sure I read this to you? I didn't think I'd written anything but the title until just last night! That's why it was in Lonely Titles. Perhaps you're thinking of something else...? :/ :)

  3. If I scroll past the picture of the laughing woman really fast, I'm convinced it Annalise. :P

    1. Also, I love how your name is actually "Alena Grobien" instead of just ba18f716-fe7a-11e0-a973-000f20980440 now! <)
