song of a smile

i pray, someday,
to grow into
my grandmother's smile.
she left it to me in a photograph --
a smile that sings
of a joy that soars,
peace like pixie dust,
and a hurricane heart.
my mother said i have the chin.
her sister said i have the eyes --
i'll tell you what i want.
i want to sing that marvellous
song of a smile.
