A Smile

by John Cabeen

I had some blood work done at the hospital last week. I sat down across from a woman wearing a chemo cap in the crowded waiting room. I looked around and my eyes caught the woman's. I smiled at her. She smiled back. I felt good the rest of the day.

People can say so much without saying anything. Unless, of course, one writes it down in six sentences.
