In Response to Your Smile

When I look upon your face, and see you
Smiling back at me, your visage makes me
Trace upon my mind love's pure light made true;
And there I look when I'm asleep, to be
Free from want and pain that causes distress,
As surely it does, to this I confess.
Yet no words do I find to respond here,
Your smile widens still at my wide silence:
And here I insert the words of a seer
That spoke many years ago of reverence;
For what you love shall remain in your heart
And cause it each day to wake up with start
Akin to starlight. And basking in grace
Of a friend you love you will know your place.
