When She Smiles
When she smiles, it's like the sunshine outshining stars above.
Transcending time and space divine with warmth and holy love.
Her joy's just like the rainbow's arc that brightens yonder sky.
Her vibrant voice sings like the lark, a gift no man could buy.
Her eyes are like those twinkling stars, like gemstones set in pearls.
Her heartbeat's soft like strummed guitars. Her hair's a thousand curls.
Her arms are like Aladdin's Cave, with treasures beyond price.
Her courage helps us to be brave. Her wisdom makes us wise.
Her memories can guide us still, through life's confusing maze.
Her prayers provide us with the will to trust God all our days.
Her hope provides us with the light that sometimes faith would share.
Like golden eagles, we take flight and glide upon the air.
Behold this maiden's heart of gold, her fashion sense and styles.
In truth, if I may be so bold... I love her... when she smiles...
