A Smile A Star Poem by mark nwagwu

A Smile A Star

Rating: 4.9

Nothing was well
all of life a duel
springing there
with blows everywhere.

Stepped out of the car
my wife not far
to hospital we headed
for what we had dreaded
results from doctors in faith anointed.

From nowhere she came to us bubbling
slim, svelte, and wondrously sparkling
She greeted us stunningly smiling.
just love you two to us she confessed
the glint in her eye a prize we possessed

What a day of grandeur this has been
a star in a smile shone in our bin

If I were a critic I'd probably say ' I'm not impressed, the rhyming's not constant, the flow in the second stanza is cut short and the length of the lines is inconsistant', but I'm no critic so i'll say this from my heart ' the message was real and the poem felt natural, not following literary expectations, so from me it's congraculations.
