His Beautiful Smile


His smile warms my heart and makes me blush,

He past me in the hall---he smiled---but was in a rush.

Smile at me once more,

His beautiful smile I adore.

His smile radiated love signals---to me I hope,

Is there anyone else for him---I hope nope.

His smile followed me home to appear in my dreams,

We were dancing---under the moonlight it seems.

When he asked me for a date,

I said “Yes---I didn’t hesitate.”

Long story short---I now see his smile every day many times over,

I see it in our twins---they smile and laugh as they play with Rover.

A smile can wake-up the coldest heart,

So don’t forget to smile---it can give your love life a start.

Thanks for your sweet comment. I always loved people who smiled. Many employees working in public never smiles. It is amazing how a smile at one person can create a chain reaction.

Have a Blessed Sunday.

This is so Beautiful — All through, I was enjoying your poem, with a constant smile on my face.

It’s amazing, how the smiles of fathers or mothers is reflected in the children, or grandchildren.

Lovely writing, Bobbi. Thank you for sharing.

Enjoyed this very much. Made me think of my soul mate who passed on. The one thing I always remember about him is his twinkling blue eyes and awesome smile,

Hi Peggy,

I always watch people to see who smiles in business.

I cannot understand someone not smiling especially working in public.

Have a wonderful weekend,

This is a great piece.

One just never knows what a smile can do.

I'm so glad this smile happened & now you can see it in the twins.
