Image for the poem The movement of your lips

The movement of your lips


Itís miraculous that anyone could smile round here
But they do
Smiles that burn the ice off your heart
Itís a miracle that anyone smiles at all anymore
But they do
Smiles that reassure you that youíre alive

Laughterís as rare as a marsh orchid
But it is heard
Laughter that brings tears
Laughter you feel in your ribs the next day
And itís those moments
That make the grey world bearable
