A BEAUTIFUL SMILE

FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE!

As you know, every Friday is POET’S Day. And this being the case, it’s only right I post a verse or two to commemorate the occasion. So here’s a poem for those of you who enjoy romantic poetry, who remain young at heart and hopeful, and know full well that LOVE IS ALL.

 

A BEAUTIFUL SMILE

Sometimes you come to a place and think love isn’t true,
And all those white clouds you believed in are gray and black.
Then you decide that it is easier not to do
Than risk loving someone who may never love you back.

Ah, were it if you could get tired of turning away
And pretending you never wanted what you’ll never miss.
Yet every time you convince yourself you shouldn’t stay,
Love slips in and speaks to you with lips you long to kiss!

For I know the pain you feel and the load you carry,
As there are many like us whose hearts have felt jaded.
While lies and betrayal are impossible to bury,
It’s more painful to resurrect what time has faded.

But might you remain so young and never grow too old
That you ever give up hope or think your life is done.
For time yet waits to bring in warmth and keep out the cold
And share with two who would learn of love…then become one!

So then, just when you think you’ve given up completely
The longing to love again and the joy to exist,
Just then, love stops and turns…and smiles at you so sweetly.
(And you know, a beautiful smile is hard to resist!)
