Captured Smile

Smiles are not earned they are a free gift.
Accept freely like the sun.
Wearing her smile and posing with style.
Memories of that special someone.

Smiles that are forced come at a great price.
They won't transfer to her eyes.
Posing with style and wearing her smile.
All the fake ones are just a disguise

Smiles that are cautious can be okay.
As long as they're meant for you.
Wearing her smile and posing with style.
You can tell when you have to smile too.

Smiles in our lives can be contagious.
I really want that disease.
Posing with style and wearing her smile.
Snap the photo, this one's sure to please.
