It was a usual morning
I sat at the coffee shop
With the same coffee and the same daily paper
I waited for her to come
And she did…
Only she wasn’t the same
There was something unusual about her
I gazed at her till she passed a dry smile to me
I kept wondering what is different about her today
How wonderful she looks everyday, why not today?
I could not help but stare
Then I heard someone say
“So she finally has plastic on her face”
And my mind was cluttered with a thousand thoughts
Oh what she must have been through for such a drastic step for her to take
I could see the sunshine fade off her face
She smiled without a smile
She looked around with guilt
She chose a secluded spot to sit
So no one could see how she looked
Oh what she must have been through
I wish I could tell how beaming she looked every single day
That I longed to see her your tranquil face every day
She is the reason I am here every morning
Why would she change?
Cant she be the same again?
She looked beautiful!
Alas its done.
But I will pray that she smiles again like she used to
“You are still beautiful inside
Don’t let it be swayed by anything”
I hope for one last thing
Please smile at me everyday
“You did look beautiful every single day!”
