Her eyes glisten. His lip trembles. Their hands envelope their bruised knees. He stares at the colours of his fingernail until they blur. She clenches her hands until they reach to her wet cheek. The cold has pinched their cheeks. Isolation has dimmed their senses. His brown scuffed shoes lose their shine. Her pearl necklace loses its sparkle. Their heartbeats thud dully. I reach out. Fingernails become an array of shades. Hands clap with joy. Cheeks are flushed with laughter. Senses sharpen; crystal clear. Brown shoes shine. Pearls sparkle. Heartbeats sing like nothing I've ever heard. Their eyes glisten with happiness. And I will continue to smile, until the world is smiling, too.
