A Reason To Smile

A Reason To Smile short poem

Photo by lurdz


Hold that smile for a second more,
For it has its reason to be there,
Unlike some forgotten lore,
It was not just a sheer chance
That carved in that spot of joy.

Let it feel the expanse of your lips.
Let your lips drench in their warmth,
For there were times when they
Trembled under the sheer sense of sorrow.
Let your eyes feel that relief which
Spreads across your face, they
Undoubtedly would want to witness
A new phase that begins tomorrow.
Happiness and sadness are each a world,
From which, you have survived on sadness
Long enough, giving you a reason to hold
This smile that spreads across your
Face, a selfish few seconds more.

Droplets dew settle sweet Upon a flower gentle sway Cricket’s empathy to the nightress sings Symphonies which chorus soon negates Darkness surrenders into full retreat Withdraws shadow from woodland’s bush and glade To a new found dawn; rhapsody with fresh
