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
