Poem: You Make Me Smile

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


You are the reason
I smile in the morning,
when a song plays on the radio
I think of you,
when I am dreaming
I hear your voice.

I want your hugs
when I first awake,
your kisses before I sleep,
your hand in mine
when we cuddle.

When I think of you
I hear your laughter,
I see the sparkle in your eyes,
I feel the joy
You bring into my life.

"Smile" by Uncle Kracker

Yes, Ann, I too have noticed that.

Guess we should all try to do this daily, the world needs a little bit more happiness.

Thanks for reading.

If you can make someone smile, it's a gift for everyone. I've noticed that if you smile at someone in the street, they smile back and suddenly the world is a much better place, confirming my faith in the human race.

Thanks Laura,

Yes, I am guilty of being a romantic. I am also a dreamer, but I love life and sharing it with someone makes it much more special.

Thank you for taking your time to read my work. I feel adding something at the end, like a song, adds to the feelings within the poem itself.

Thanks again.

Very nice poem, Brenda you are a romantic and that is so refreshing, and I love the fact that you add a song to your poems, this song is one of my favorite uplifting happy songs!
