Ella Goodman


Your smile is all I live for
Through the thousand dark miles
Forsaken by light, all grim.... grasped between
A world unknown gnawing in agony, venting jeer,
Its dark all around, no sound, no life,
Cold and hard the shadows growing dark
All along the while...your smile is all I wait for
Through all the tempest tossing life to haywire
Through the hail pelting hard across the face
Bruising the flesh raw red. Just a smile along 
The lines of your face is all I seek,
A reward, a blessing, an antidote, a grand treat,
It holds so much meaning to me...though faint it
May be, not looking into my eyes but delighting
Another heart beloved to you, still I treasure that
Smile coming from you.!
Through the corners of your lips,
Your eyes radiating a jeweled sparkle
When you smile in your self possessed aura
I live a thousand lives, embraced in an invisible
Love spreading multiple colours of bliss and solitude.
Your smile adds sparkle to my being
A balm that soothes all my affliction,
A glint of light that illumines my world,
Like the first rays of dawn that shine the 
Abandoned cave covered by thrones,
Where no soul treads its path, where the thick dust
Enjoy their untrampelled reign, no wind brushing
 Against its wall. Into that hearth secluded, most
Forgotten, untreaded where none care to peep,
When into that black cavern the unbiased rays do fall,
A new joy sets in.
Just so my heart basks in riot of hues and warmth
To glance a smile light upon your face,
A dawn of hopes thus setting in.
