The magic of her smiling eyes


What is this mystery
Where does her secret lie
It's not in her beauty
Though her age is disguised 

It's in the magic of her smiling eyes

It's not in her voice 
Or the grace of her stance
It's not in the stride of her step
It's her inner light that leaves you entranced

It's in the magic of her smiling eyes

Her spirit infectious that no man can master
While no stranger to tragedy or demise
It's not in her laughter resounding ever after
It's not that she's wealthy or wise

It's in the magic of her smiling eyes

There's not a soul in the world 
Untouched by pain a string of broken dreams that have died
She refuses to focus on things which are hopeless
It's optimism bubbling where springs of fresh water reside

It's in the magic of her smiling eyes

When hateful actions failed to kill her
Though for a time bowed head and lowered eyes
From yesterday's rooted in pain she beckoned
Not I, not I, I will rise

It's in the magic of her smiling eyes

Tis the daybreak of freedom
From teardrops so heavy too thick to even cry
This is the undaunted mystery 
That persistently begs to know why

Its in the magic of her smiling eyes

Captivity no more her light shines forth
A diadem of victory realized
From beauty to ashes and back again
Her destiny hanging on for the ride

In this resides...
The magic of her smiling eyes

    To overcome the pain, the negativity, the hurt, & still shine at the end of the day...shine even brighter the next day, that's embracing self to the Nth degree. So many need a lesson in this. This was touching & vital to the needs of humanity out there. Awesome work! =D
