I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR A PETRA SMILE

When she was six days old, she smiled at me.
I was singing at the time.
They said it wasn’t a social smile,
just an accidental movement of mouth muscles.

As the weeks went by, she had more accidents.
They can’t pinpoint the day she figured it out,
but now they say that Petra’s smiling social smiles.

Now she knows exactly what she’s doing,
and she does it well.
Petra blesses freely with her smiles.
She blesses Daddy’s funny faces,
she blesses Mommy’s conversations.

She bestows a variety of smiles on relatives and strangers.
Sometimes she adds well-chosen accidental words.
