The Shadow of a Smile

kyrielle sonnet

Graduating from college life
in June of nineteen sixty-five,
We recall in music's spotlight -
The Shadow of Your Smile - top-flight.

Departing from four-year friendships,
Some thought that nothing could eclipse
a love affair, they knew was so right -
Shadows of Your Smile at midnight.

On the world's stage, they’re newcomers
They marched to different drummers;
All but forgotten, tribute’s slight, 
the Shadow of Your Smile became trite.

What wistful star may shed some light? 
The Shadow of a New Smile might.

not as deep as old, a song I first heard 50 years ago plus. I appreciate the read and the single word reply.
