My Daughter's Smile

My Daughter's Smile By Linda Hays-Gibbs There is a light, a light so sweet, comes from a smile beaming out from deep-within a soul, of infinite warmth, a burning coal alight with dawn, a tune to the rhythm of God's song. My lovely daughter with warmth and laughter beamed with this magical ray both day and night it was fantastical, it was radical for all that met her were so glad they did for when graced with her smile you felt better for a long, long while. It made you kind, just to feel it's warmth, like you too could find her joy within. Her smile was a witness so infinite that we all wanted it. But life brought disappointments to grace her door, as life is cruel as we all know but achievements too with higher aims of dedication but somehow crushed her radiation and brought her low for this light did go. We all missed it's warmth, it infinite bliss like just missing a morning kiss. We asked her please, tell us what is wrong, tell us, if we can help bring back your song Bring back your eternal glow the one we yearn for, the bliss we know. It made us all feel so wonderful just to be near you and we have no clue of what to do! Oh sweet darling nothing in life compared to it! I know for I spent my life just to nurture it So if you aren't happy let's change your circumstance, Change your house, change your dance, change your job change your ways, we sob, but please oh please bring back that warmth, that fire from inside that made all life worthwhile we confide Since you were a very young child I've basked in the warmth of your smile! God gave you that light and something has defiled Something had taken that pure purpose and love! Thrown water on your fire and oh my sweet we all see it, we all care I know God is with you I know you're still there but sweet girl you've lost your pearl of great price and this will not suffice Stand back a little and find the match nothing is worth the loss of your batch of magic Take heed oh please hear me We all got to have it! We all need to bask in the warmth of that beauty, that smile. For you brought God's love to our hearts with it's glow So we all want to help, to know, to search high and low for your infinite sweetness again to beam across the room and bring a multitude of people to God with just your smile for that is what you could do my sweet sweet beautiful child! So Find your JOY, find your place but whatever you do find your face alight with your grin for only then will you win This race of life is hard and mean it strips the heart like a machine We have to fight for somethings so pure that just one drop can heal and cure Your smile is like this It holds such bliss it's a lovely kiss Don't let it die don't let it leave it's much more important than you believe! God wants us happy He wants us ecstatic He wants us all filled with your enigmatic magic but only you of all I knew had it since a child had it all the while until just recently & I tell you distinctly No home will help, no Bible verses kept, no good deeds they're all inept. I know it was while we slept a thief crept in and made the theft and we all have wept. Come my sweet, find your center Find your joy let it reenter You are so blessed to have that gift that with your smile our burdens lift. Bring back that glow from deep inside, a place so sweet we all confide, we need to see your smile of glee your smile of mystery, that love you gave to yourself and me and everyone that could see, that joy that flooded from your eyes when you lips upturned we all confide our hearts sang your joyful tune &we all realize our lives were much brighter with your smiles, your laughter So we beg, we plead how can we rebirth& nurture this seed, this priceless pearl and make you believe again in all goodness in all you see for your smile was coming from God's infinity Don't you know some things are key Like that smile of essence of yours Bea!
