Your Smile (poem)

Updated on June 4, 2015

When troubles loom

And worries bloom

The skies once bright are marred with gloom

My senses shrouded by some doom

-

The ceaseless strain

Of mindless pain

An emptiness I can’t explain

And all I was begins to drain

-

Your smile

And everything you do

Refreshes me anew

A faithful light to see things through

My grace of hope for world more true

-

Amid the squall

When hardships call

And pillars everlasting fall

Dark shadows from their corners crawl

-

Confusion’s reign

Its sparks insane

And holds on me I can’t contain

My slipping grip I can’t maintain

-

Your smile

And everything you are

My everlasting star

In Joy you call me from afar

To save me from world gone bizarre

-

Your smile

And all your precious ways

Those meanings of my days

A certainty which never strays

Your love which shines beyond all praise

-

Your smile
