My Secret

from afar one can see how life
has its up and downs, many smiles
and of course frowns that shape our vision
of life, tendencies seem to pull towards
only knowing the frowns, the goodness
seems to hide like a secret that only
the elite can know, but once that
secret is revealed eyes are opened
to all the goodness, all the love all the smiles around us, it is
then that we thank our creator
not just for the goodness but
for the blessing of knowing
the secret, and right there and
then like a fire we want to share
the secret with all who want
to know, i have this need
to share my secret of love and kindness
and hope with that special person in
my life, for if she just looks in my eyes
she will see the reflection of my up and downs
of my path in life,...and with it comes my secret.
