A Gentle Smile - November 15, 2010



A Gentle Smile

When all was dark in paradise I saw a gentle smile
Coming from a twilight time
With hands of fortune folded all the while
Pressed into the spaces of a rhyme

Timid choruses wondered at my passion there
The stars for no reason ventured out
Kindness sang without a care
In a melody devout

A circle from a distant time of gold recited
With thoughtful ears that heard
Verses offered up when dark was lighted
With the gift of precious words

A restful peace rose up into my blissful state of view
Offering up countless unsung refrains
In a quiet hush I brought to you
The music in my veins

Never shall I lose the sight of this gentle smile
Coming from the light of twilight time
As paradise had been dark for quite awhile
Until this smile arrived in a rhyme

Smiles, one of those priceless treasures. Some, though, are worth more than others.
