your smile

i would fall
a thousand times over,
just to see you smile again.
i would marry just your smile,
then i’d brush up on my poetry
so that everyday
i could recite
the thousand words
that your smile is worth.

  1. yes, it is.

    could be a few words, or one, or none.

    thousand is relevant here for a few reasons, because the second line indicates falling a “thousand times over”. So the second last line has “a thousand words” to mirror that.

    also it goes with the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words, though that is not really directly (or even indirectly) implied here.
