Your Smile

 

Your smile is like the new moon,
stretching, extending.
Contagious! Like a virus,
it spreads, unrelenting,
unstoppable,
unforgettable,
until it's invaded my soul,
my heart,
and I smile too,
thoroughly thawed.
(In fact, sweltering -- coolly.)

Your eyes glister
like reflections of stars,
far,   
far
       away.
Sparkling with the energy
of the newborn cub.
Radiating.
Giving me hope
and refuge.

Your hair shines,
deeply, like
polished mahogany.
Shrouds your face,
frames your smile,
embeds your eyes.

You are so beautiful!

My heart is yours,
for now and forever.
