Carpe Diem #1026 Smile

“Let us always meet each other with smile, fowwr the smile is the beginning of love.” Mother Teresa

I  have volunteered with one hospice patient for more than a year.  Although, her awareness has continued to  words diminish she always greets you with a smile when she knows you are beside her.  It is not a  week smile, but a big smile with flashing white teeth. It is a smile that lights up her whole continence, if only for a moment.

robbed of memories
her eyes and smile still flash
with every greeting


a baby’s first smile
stirs the love in our hearts
seeds of joy
