Poem ‘Your Smile in a Dream’

Your Smile in a Dream

If I close my eyes and

Imagine your face

Would you

Smile within

My mind?

Would the thought

Alone be enough

To shine through

And make

A bad day

Good?

I don’t know

You but

I feel

I should

Every day

I find you

Against

The darkness

You are

An image of

Light

Shining in

Memory in

Dream—

You captivated me

A decade gone

I still think of

You and

Wonder when?

When will I

See that face in

That moment

Shining

Through the

Haze of

Uncertainty

Yet,

I am certain

The time is

Near

You are

Around and

I will know

The day

You call

My name and

I turn to

Look into

Those eyes

And smile

Back at

You and

Back at

The smile in

My mind that

Says—

This time it is finally real.
