the power of your face

when you smile

to unlock my frozen heart

continues to stop me in my tracks

confounds me

wordlessly

i can only love you back

      This is great Audrey.

      They asked a question why hubbers post so many poems. I replied back and mentioned you as a gifted poet, which I think you are.

      Beautiful!.

      I can be so mad at my husband some days, and all it takes is for him to make a silly joke or say something stupid, and I forget what it was I was mad about.
