Smile Awhile...

Smile Awhile...

I felt you
even as the day progressed
into evening...
and on into the night.

The smile
it caused me
made me warm... safe.
And it lingered
as long as the thought
of you stayed with me.

No, it wasn't
a big flashy smile...
nor one of confidence.
It was just a smile.
A smile that brought
the easy,
knowing feelings of
"I'm okay,
because you are here,
and you care."

It was the smile
of seeing a candle,
softly casting shadows...
the smile
of watching you sleep,
safe in your/our world.

A person can be familiar
with many thoughts and nuances...
and still be comfortable
inside the smile that's created.

So, while I sit here
coffee warming my lips...
I'll watch you and think about you...
and smile awhile...
waiting for the dawn,
and you,
to wake... and cast new smiles... my way.

Once again your beautiful words paint such a beautiful picture in my mind. How lucky that woman is to feel such safety and comfort with have you watch her sleep and wake up to smile at you. My heartfelt wish is that you have this in your life.....forever. And that she always wakes to smile at you. ~hugs~ 143

Everyone needs a "smile donor" like this.

Angel, there's an old Temptation's song called, "Just My Imagination." I once knew this feeling... but it isn't, and hasn't been here for a very long time. But thank you for your wish for me. Know my wish is for the samething for you. hugs, 143

Fly, and the same goes for you, too, pal. You are very dear to me, also. 143
Tabs, thanks... I'm glad it made you feel that way. That reassures me to know that perhaps my poems make someone feel good. hug and sweet kiss, (feel better soon!)
Thanks old man... it is appreciated. And it's appreciated whenever you stop by here.
Purry, thanks. I can just picture you all relaxed, legs up, and sipping coffee as you go through blogland. Classy lady, to say the least... hugs and I'll freshen your coffee for you, unlisted
Va... that's very true. Everyone needs a donor of smiles. But you have to look for the genuine smiles. Not the ones that will just smile when they want something. The old song, "Smiling Faces" had it right.... sometimes "they lie." and you can't imagine "the evil that lurks within." You have to find the ones that smile because they are real.
