The smile of an abandoned figure
along the pavement in a corner in *Taiping
stretched far and wide as he received
the bundle of rations given
because this day his stomach
don’t have to fight the hunger.
His gentle happy smile
provoked my heart’s ripples
slowly within and within
each ripple disappeared
unto one another the love is expressed
and the blossoming warmth ensued
leaving me in blissful reverie
as I marched with great experience
that human can give anything
only smile gives appreciation.
