Hold You In My Smile - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling,
that has only just been found,
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile,
So that I can savour you once more,
and hold you in my smile.

    I love this smile. It brings back lovely memories and feelings. The writing is so lovely and 'simple.' I mean simple in that you use no unnecessary words and the poem flows in a beautiful sing-song rhythm. I appreciate this skill. Bravo! (Report) Reply
