I caught the smile in your eyes
like a firefly in a jar-
it was as sweet as the one worn
on your lips-
like a painting-
spread thoughtfully on a canvas by
a steady hand-
each stroke so deftly placed-
I bottled it up and stared at it through
the glass-
a beautiful creation
tapping gently against the sides
with mystery-
I didn’t want to let it go*
