His Smile: A Poem
How my heart gladdens
When he laughs.
How my tears disappear
Knowing he is near.
How my mind rests with only his smile.
He is neither mine
Nor will he ever be.
I did not provoke his laughter.
I can not draw him to me
And his smile welcomes another.
Yet, I am content if only he is happy.
I dare not tell of my offered sacrifices
Hoping for him graces I’ve earned,
If only my prayer is heard.
Oh, but if only I heard his laughter….
