Are you the Smile

Are you that smile that wakes me up at dawn,
whenever I stretch my waking arms and yawn?
The gentle breeze that kiss my skin on the lawn,
whenever my lonely heart sleeps by moonlight.

Are you the wild waves from that gentle sea
that whisper from the leaves of my timeless tree?
Telling me sweet tales of what in us will forever be-
a twin garden garnished with glittering sight.

Are you that light that speaks from the dark skies, 
whenever I get laden with loads of loss and lies?
with... Favour, you fly into my world and make me wise,
bringing in faith and focus to win every fight.

Are you that glow in me like a festoon of flower,
the helping hands that hold me in my darkest hour?
the symphony of succour when my soul get sour,
the fist of faith, that made my fears took flight.

Are you the sweet smile that stole my soul?
With your warm heart, I need no hot coal, 
its a virtuous victory, yes we scored a golden goal,
and never again will my nifty nature niggle at night.

You are that bliss that blossoms in me, being my boon,
the sparkles of beauty, ever there at morn and noon...
My wildest wish at night, my crooning moon,
I love you my angel, you make me feel alright.
