Smile For Me

Can you smile a smile for me?
Does my love touch you that deep?
I love to see you smile, my dear.

Are you happy with me, dearest one?
Are you smiling just for me today?
I love to see you smile, my dear.

God only knows why you love me.
But I know your love to be so true.
I love to see you smile, my dear.

Can you smile a smile for me?
Is your smile and your love that deep?
I love to see you smile, my dear.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have found that you can measure your partner's love for you in the way that they smile.
Sometimes, they save a certain one just for you.

    does this mean that, though divorced, you have a female love? it was not mentioned in your informative bio.
    i like the poem, primarily because i like the subject matter and feeling it conveys. a bit repetitive but repetition can be GOOD. unfortunately, i don't know that i could always place so much confidence in a smile. i've been divorced three times. thanks for sharing. maybe your partner has a 'CERTAIN' smile for YOU? Lucky you! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
