Your Smile (poem)

Updated on September 3, 2012

My meaning is the sunshine of your smile

It’s there my heart finds purpose for the day

A scent of heaven guiding me away

And what I’ll give to drift with you awhile

-

Mere words just blush at what your lips convey

A myriad of magic memories

The love songs which were captured in a breeze

Those many seasons calls my soul to stray

-

I dare the night my actions do not please

And tears of sadness come to steal the light

I curse this fool whose madness took his sight

And let his sense of value wane an ease

-

Now all of life seeks refuge from some blight

Soft space to rest amid the endless trial

And there a newfound strength and hope compile

For me my love your smile is my delight

      Beautiful words, M. For reasons that I can't explain, the whole thing reminds me of the Mona Lisa. Maybe it's because of the picture of the girl holding the rose. Who knows what she's thinking? Great song by a great duo, too.

      Voted up!

      Mere words just blush at what your lips convey

      I love the imagery in these words. This verse speaks to a once profound love as only a lover can convey. That love songs were captured in a breeze and that a soul was called to stray. A strong connection summons us.

      Really lovey. Voted up.
