Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

The smile

My inspiration in time of doubt
It fills my heart with happiness throughout.
When I awake, it is what I see,
An adorable smiling face looking at me.

I try to savor it as much as I can,
'Cause I know, this smile makes me who I am.
Sometimes, it seems, as if, so far away
But I know now, it gets closer everyday.

I used to dream and hope to have it near,
Now dreams are reality and I see it so very clear
This smile of yours, brightens my day and captivates my soul,
It enlightens my life, yet makes me lose control.
