    My smile was taken away

    Hi teachers,

    It seemed as if my smile was taken away. Today I tried to smile and I succeeded. Is it correct?

    Many thanks.

    I don't know what you are trying to say. If today your smile came back, then it seems to me that the first part of the piece should be in the past perfect.

    It had seemed as if my smile had been taken away. However, today I tried to smile and I succeeded.
