Treasure Island

Hold On Your Smile


Innocent chuckles of an infant
Be the toothless grin of a grandma;
The pride of a charming beauty;
An expression so simple and elegant,
Smile captures every heart.

In the battle of ego and pride
While you fail to win any ride;
Sometimes a smiley
Sent beyond the valleys,
Smile conquers every heart.

Mischief when you fail to hide,
That, words fail to define;
In the sigh of forgiveness;
Its powerful an expression
For silent communication.

For that one awaiting a reply
Though mind says, ”Yeah, go for it”
But no courage to speak up,
It becomes a silent answer

Like the stars that twinkle
Every time with a brighter winkle,
Though you get wrinkles;
Above all reasons,
Throughout the seasons,
Hold on your smile :)
