the power of a smile

Who could withstand the
power of your smile, and
once in the hearing of your
laughter turn away from you
not wanting to stay

For to share a precious moment
of your time is more than a
treasure, it is a priceless
pearl which burns a hole deep
in the soul of one who shares
it’s love in return

I shudder as I try to speak
for I stumble over the words
that escape from my lips,
finding many moments where
my chances escape to tell
you what I really feel

For the power of your smile
melts me down and I become
worried because I long to
know if when you look at
me when I smile, that you feel
the same awesome power too.

As that first time, my wifes
smile still leaves me breathless!!!
