A story of the meeting of two live and all it took was a smile,then to be sadden by a tear and a float piece of papper,I hope you like it.

I saw you today,You Looked so sad as I Noticed you were all
alone,Your stare into alonely place,I watched as it seemed like
clouds over cast your World, I couldnt tell what the Matter was, I
just knew I should try and bring you into mine,
I walked over and sat down,You didn't Know me ,And I thought that you
were alittle scared as I said hello,You said a slight, hello, So i
Smiled ,I could see you Questioned it,I told you I'd seen you many
times before, but there was somthing Missing Today,
You looked at me Stangely And Wondered by saying; You've seen Me You
asked,What Is Missing you asked,
I looked at you, "Your Smile" You've had it before,I've seen it each
day you pass by,So I've Walked over to tell you,I really miss seeing
it, So just for You, I'd like to share Mine With you ,If you'll Take
It, Then I saw You
Smile"You sat looking at me ,not saying much yet,I sat there scared that
I'd say somthing wrong,we talked finly about all the things we wished
for out of life,Seemed you wanted to be a actress,and I wanted to be
a drifter,you asked me where I'd Been ?I asked you where you were
going?Neather one of us really knew,We walked a while and the stopped
and got Coffee, after we left back to where we had met,the lights of
the city shined so wonderfull around us,The smile you had now ,Made
my heart glad,and my funny little jokes about us seemed to make it
grow,You looked so lovley in the moon light,Your hair how it
glistened in the breeze of the night ,It was soon late you said you
needed to go ,
And I said Yes I guess so,I ask will I see you again,you told me
Maybe,I did so want to,I just was in hope,That you did me to, You got
up and Started to walk away,And I stood and Asked one more time for a
smile ,So I could keep it in my mind forever,You did and walked
away ,I watched till you soon was out of sight,
I had fallin in love with a smile ,a smile I might not ever see
again,I kept hoping you'd come back ,but you didn't ,as I stood in
the cool spring breeze, I suddenly thought; .. I dont even know her
name,And you didn't know Mine ,I stood alone ,Tring to not forget
your face till I"d see it again.but....
I would Now Haft to Hope and Pray, As my Smile now soon faded
The next day I woke up,wondering where you were at that time,and even
through the day I wondered if you'd think about me,the time seemed to
crawl by as I hurried to get off of my job and go to the place we
met, hopeing you'd be there,I sat on the bench,watching the lake and
others pass by, but it seemed to get cloudy and the warm breeze
turned cold as I sat there waiting ,had you forgotten me?my thoughts
rambled as I search the walkway searching for you,
I wondered was last night just a dream,didn't we walk the night
away,or was it just make believe in my mind ,your face i saw ,even
the smile you gave...Me.
As it got much later, i still looked down the path for a wish that
the next person would be you,but it wasn't, it was just a old man
collecting cans,it seemed my wish was not in sight as the Chill went
through me and my heart felt broken ,for there was no you to keep it
That night I got up and looked into the shining waters from
the lights and wondered if id ever see you again, I
then walked home Wandering in my mind where you were?seemed now my
Smile had gone away,As I stood looking in the water ,My thoughts went back as we sat at
the Diner ,She had said she didn't live far ,But there were to many
streets for me to search,I walked down the Path to the Main street,
looking at every face that passed me by ,they must of thought I was
Crazey as i stared in to their face ,I decided to check the
Dinner ,Maybe by some chance she was there,As i bumped through the
the Crowd, all i could see was her face,

As I reach the dinner i went inside ,Looking going through the tables
looking as i stood at the door ,I went to the counter and sat
down,asking for coffee before I left for my Apartment, looking at the
waitress ,she looked at me and asked if there was anything else ,and
i declined, I finished and paid for the coffee and left a tip,

Then walking down the side walk in a drizzle of rain, Reaching my
place I got my keys out and opened the door,It was late and I was
tired, Luckly the next day it was Saturday,and I'd be off. I could
sleep a little later ,As I laid looking up at the blinking light on
the ceiling from the building next door,
My sleep was useless,all I could see was the Image of the Face I had
met the night before,what if i never saw her again? what a void it
would leave in my heart, I had to regain my sences, But how could i
when her life had touched mine ,My eyes closed to see the path she
had walked down in to my life.The next day i was awaken by the sound of the radio Playing,Just my
Imagination,I laid listening to it ,Getting up i saw the rain against
my window ,Taking my day away to find you,But my Will was strong And i
soon found my self out , Cause I rather feel the rain on my face then
Feel the storms of the pain in my heart from missing you,My stop at
the dinner would find the Waitress say ,Your missing your friend? i
looked at her in wander Questioning her, if shed seen her ,She
nodded ,why yes no more the a hour a go,I finished my Coffe and Roll
and asked if she saw which way she left,She said towards the Park
With a smile. I thanked her and leaving the money and left.
I hurried to the path,the rain was now stopping, i soon found our
bench ,but as i looked there was no her,as i sat the rain from the
tree hit my face ,as i looked down ,my hands wiping my face,When
saddness fill the depths of my heart,

Then a voice came from the walk behind me , " I
noticed you wernt wearing your smile to day ,Can i share mine with
you" as I turned, There she stood in a blue spring dress with the
Smile i'd left her,Her hair shining, and her eyes Saying hello, My
smile told her I was glade she was there, my coat i laid aside and
walked over, I took her coat ,Shall we walk?, I asked, She nodded, I
got my coat and I stared in to the eyes, of the dream I'd hoped to
find, Through the City we walked looking into windows and at funny
people on the street as we Shared a New smile Together,Then I asked
her Name, It was as beautifull as she was ,and she asked mine, I
told her ,She looked at me and said I thought so,

Taking her hand we strolled the busy streets ,Stopping to enjoy a
I noticed a flower cart and ran over, coming back almost tripping, I
Gave her a blue flower to match her Dress, The smile from her thanked
me enough,How lovley she looked as we walked to the Dinner, Laughing
at the Trip i took,
We Enjoyed the day ,She wanted to see a Art show, So we went in a
building there was a Art show from ,Canada,As we looked at each
painting we saw a Pretty scenery one ,Funny People in some, some sad
pictures, I saw one with a Old woman hanging up cloths, I told
her ,it looked like her, she
found one that had a old farmer in one with a pitch fork, and a old
hat,She said it looked like me,We laughed at each other,
We spent the whole after noon looking at all the Paintings.

I bought her one with a butterfly on a daisy, She loved it, It
really looked real,And After the Show we made our way to the Diner ,
After going in the Waitress he'd seen before said , Oh i see you
found her , Then gave us time to look at a menue, Our Dinner
was great , It was such a wonderfull day, After Dinner we walked
to the walk along the lake, We smiled and talked and Looked as
Ducks that swam to shore to be fed, I went to a cracker Machine and
bought som Crackers for her and we feed the
Again it got Late; But this time i got her Adress and she took
mine, I wanted to walk her home, but she said she had to stop at her

We said good night, As a kiss told us we Had a good evening
together,I watched again as she walked down the Path, but this time
knowing i'd soon see her again,She turned ,I looked We both
Smiled,And went our ways,With both our Smiles'
The Next day I woke from my Bed Expecting Wonderfull things to
happen, A new day in my life ,My work would shurly go fast and My
Evening Meeting with the Special person in my life would be there
waiting, The day went by so slow my mind kept Going
forward and backwards to the Day we had, When my day did end I
hurried home ,On my Message recorder was a message ,It was from
her ,It said meet her at the Cornner of Billings and West,She had
somthing to say, I hurried Got my Best for the
Meeting ,Almost running down the Crowed street To the
Cornner ,Finding It and Curious cause it being in front of a Train
Station , I waited Leaning up against a window ,And
hearing the Train departures Anounced, A taxi Pulled up, She
got out in a New Green Dress , The driver got out and open the
Trunk,As I looked, What was Happening ? He sat down the Bags and She
paid for the Fare , She started for the Bags But I Grabbed
them , A questioning look came from my eyes, And she told me, She
was Sorry but she had to leave The actress job she wanted had come
true and her rehearsal was at ten tomorrow morning ,I was Glade for
her With a Slight Smile,
I asked her how long shed be Gone? She told me A week or so ,If she
got the part, We went to the Caffee in the Station ,
We talked about Me maybe Comming out there in a couple of days after
she was settled, She said it would be great,Then We'd see each other
then, As her City was called for departure, She had my Nummber and
Address , as I helped her with her bags and she went to the
gate ,Smiling and gave me a kiss,

I'll call you when I arrive,She said to tell you what going to
happen ,I said That be Great"
I gave her A smile Knowing id miss her deeply ,She turned as her
Smile went from my view,And we waved,

A day passed ,I wondered ,The next Day came ,She must of got busy ,
That was all , I'd hear from her in a day or so , They to,
came and Went ,My saddness Overwelmed me at the end of each day ,I
checked my phone and nothing was there Then in my Mail a
Telegraph,Was In my box,I read Urjent in bold Letters From Hollywood
California, I decided to wait to open it and Found my self at the
Park, on the Park bench Near the Lake,I sat Opening the Letter

Opening the sheet off paper,I looked and read the words that would pierce my heart forever... a tear ran down my face and then more as my face went to my hands, Dropping the
Letter and the wind picking it up taking it to the waters of the
lake ; On top of the water it floated away,In my mind the words
filled my Mind with so much sorrow as it said,

We are sorry to inform you Miss Bellings Died yesterday from a Auto
accident,While crossing the Street ,She requested as her Last words
were to tell you ,She not Smiling Alone anymore, But With you
Always.You must always Smile back,For I'm There with you.. The cool breeze, the thought when I raise his eyes in tears,A lovly blue butterfly flew around me,
a slight smile appeared,

He Whispered ,,..........I'll ....try" As a tear fell,



As I said;....Yea"....see, It was there all the
Time. We laughed".And it became a new
