I Like The Teeth In Your Smile

1. I like the teeth in your smile,
And the edges of your eyes where the little lines play
I like the shine of your dark brown hair
Even more with the occasional gray
I like the tone of your voice when you ask me if I love you
When you know I know you know I do …

2. I like the second hand dress
That you wore when we wed on that August day
I like the way you saw beauty in the weeds
That you took for your bridal bouquet
I like how you look back and you ask if I remember
When you know I know you know I do …

3. I like how you ignore the budget
When you find a cause to give money to
I like the quality you have that makes people
Want to open their hearts to you
And how when you’re down you ask if I also see the sorrow
When you know I know you know I do …

No, it’s not always so easy

4. I like the way you insist
That we talk at night when I only want to read
I like the way you say “leave me alone”
When you finally get the book from me
And all the times you ask if I wish that we’d met sooner
When you know I know you know I do …
