His Gentle Smile (poem)

Updated on September 5, 2014

There he sits the world now passes by

Something else again has caught his eye

Yet if you ask he’ll offer no reply

The world is trapped within his gentle smile


A landmark they have come to know

This man who offers no hello

Yet all are captured by his glow

A world is spoken there within his smile


No one knows yet tales are sung

Of memories when they were young

And by enchantment they were stung

That world remains reflected in his smile


Amid the moon’s romantic light

Such dancing dream brought stars delight

As countless kisses thrilled the night

This world sustained somewhere in his smile


The realms of love at their command

There never was a love so grand

They held so much within their hand

A world they made a haven in his smile


Times like these not seen for awhile

Mystery captured by love’s guile

Lovers drift on a distant isle

The world is there within his gentle smile
