A Smile Is All I Need To See

You Have My Complete Attention

Today was special in a way I will try to describe

I found something new about me I didn't even know until a moment ago

I am hooked on people that smile

They catch my eye and then before you know it I am weak in the knees

It is a drug that is sold over the counter for free

Legal in all 52 states

I am shocked how fast it works like an aphrodisiac

I get all queezy and my insides turn to instant jello

I think this could not be happening to me

Snap out of it

This is rediculious

But the fact of the matter is

I am still falling hook line and sinker

I am caught up in the moment

I am blown away from just a smile that your lips form

Instantly I tell myself look away and if you feel the same way still start to run

This is not normal and quite out of the ordinary if you ask me

A smile triggers my mind to feel something so special

So personal

Emotional and gratifying

A complete since of feeling

Reassuring what I believe that life is really worth smiling about

To see a natural smile that is radiant and bright

There is no instrument that scientists have ever made that can register the effect a smile has on someone else

But I will stop to tell you it is nothing short of incredible!

My heart races and my mind suddenly goes blank

Nothing else seems to matter

I don't have to know the person

It is just the veiw that I see

I feel honored by their presence

For this very instant I am completely pacified

I don't read into the why's or the who

I just know it is you

Who has taken my day and made me smile too

It must be contageous and I am so glad it is

I have been charmed many times then

So when this smile comes to an end

I patiently wait for another smile to take its place

As I get a whole body rush from head to toe

I am the lucky one who appreciates the beauty you explore

You have perfectly demonstrated what it feels like to be in heaven

Where life is shared and admired for all its blessings and rewards

Keep those smiles coming and maybe other people will finally understand

It is not what we hold in our hands that is precious

It is what we see that satisfies me

Hi, this is so awesome.

Smile is the most beautiful gift a person can give.

It lights up the sky, it breaks the ice, it softens the heart, it relieves the pain, it helps build bridges...

I voted up :-)

Dream On,

I'm smiling, lol.

You're so right about a smile being a turn on, when it's genuine. A simple smile expresses sooooooo much!!!

I could not have covered the effect they can have on those of us with a heart to appreciate them nearly as superbly as you have here.

You should consider sending this to Hallmark. If I read this in a card, I'd keep it forever. :)

I like seeing smiles. I hear they cause fewer wrinkles than frowning too! Thank you for making me smile.

'Smile and the whole world smiles with you but cry and you cry alone'. This is a saying in our country.

Nice poem. A person who smiles radiated so much of positivity. Your poem made me smile. Smile is contagious. Thanks.

Voted up.
