When I Saw You Smile

I saw you smile; 

And though the sky is clear, 
The sun still shining bright, 
Green from sturdy trees by the roadside
And grass on the open yards
Are still pleasing to the eyes, 

They have become a little bit clearer
A little bit brighter, 
A little bit greener, more pleasant

When I saw you smile.

There is a pinch of pain in my heart
From your splendor's glow
Blessed by Nature
To be set above all creation; 
From the sparkle of evening stars, 
The deepest blue of the seas most calm, 
And the sweet, sweet face of angels
Combined in one.
And there is a pinch of pain in my heart
By the knowledge that you
Embody all I am in search of
Yet could not
Should not
Hence in silence
I revere

When I saw you smile.

A passing fancy, 
Or a secret I shall take to the grave, 

You are.
