Smile For Me Poem by Robert Johnston


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
