Smile lost and found

Have you seen my smile?

 I have been looking for it for a long time.

 It has gone missing,

 I don’t know  How, When, & Why? 

 Will you help me look for it?

 Should I look for it among the green grasses?

 Or is it to be found playing with dancing butterflies?

 Should I look for its traces along the long green trees standing in a row?

 Or has it been racing with the winds blowing?

 Do you think the snow-clad mountains will tell its path when asked?

 Or should I look along the flowing streams for it might have left its watermark?

 Wait! Let me hear the whispering grounds,

 who knows they might be knowing about my smile’s whereabouts.

 Looked everywhere, nowhere to be found.

 O! How much I earn to see my smile.

 Having nothing to do but sit back and reflect.

 Recalling all the encounters I have had in search of my smile,

 I realized an upward curve surfaced on my face.

 That’s how I found my lost smile which had given me a miss for a while.

 This is the end of the story, “Smile lost and found.”
