The Philosophy of a Smile

Sometimes in the light of things big and small we lose count of our blessings and we begin to fall into the dark abyss, but all it take to climb out of such a shroud, is a kind smile from the one you love.

The Philosophy of a Smile



The Philosophy of a Smile

Sometimes I feel so small,
So insignificant
Standing below God’s crimson clouds
Watching the fading colors
Of another cold day
Fold away
Into starlight and shadow,

Fading silently
And forever hopelessly
Into the blue abyss
Of a never ending dream.

The Soft Darkness



Now comes the soft darkness
And like a velvet shadow
It descends about us,
About love, and life,
About the treasures
Of our time

As the things we find irresistible
Seem as if
They are always slipping away
From us,
Leaving us on the dark side;

And Then Comes That Smile


And then comes that smile
And almost magically
We begin to twirl inside our dreams,
Like sunlight slips through time
And space.

For now we are on
A never-ending odyssey
Of wonder and life

Always engrossed
Within our hopes
And dreams.

The Last Words



After all,
It is only the last words

That remains full and true,
Always the last image
That is caught
Within the innocent eye

That shines sincere.
All else melt away
Into unconscious memories
Unamplified and faded,
Confused with time,

But That Smile



But that smile,
That one sweet smile
Will always, always, always
Be remembered through love and life
With a fondness
That only time can share
.

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

Sadly, a friend of mine went missing last night and its nearly 24 hours. She got lost around 10pm last night and this poem reminded me of her disappearance. She is the Current Face Of the Globe (UK) Miss New Zealand 2014

Very moving words. I have been spending a lot of time alone recently - thinking perhaps too much of times past and loved ones passed on. A smile is such a beautiful thing ... Blessings.
