A Smiling Photograph - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

I see everything smiling in her portrait!
Wish mortality to the lovely smiles,
what made her a smiling barbie doll?
It's love my friend!
She loves the creator,
she loves the creation,
and He returned Her love with a gift,
a gift of a soft loving heart,
reflected in her beautiful starry eyes,
and her eyes then saw all around a beauty on the earth,
not only on the earth,
in between earth and heaven,
and even beyond the heavens,
She was so much amazed,
she forgot everything,
she forgot even herself,
ecstasy in love,
so divine so pure,
made everything she has, smiling,
that's what her portrait whispered,
that's what a poet heard,
inspired and what else he could do,
expressed his feelings in a poem,
a poem on a lovely photograph!
Alas! The earth couldn't keep the bud,
to blossom as as a flower,
and the greedy heaven snatched her from the earth,
but again while wishing her soul a peace in the heavens,
I am sure her charming smile,
would have snatched more charms from the heaven!

    I was shocked to know she is no more on the earth. If I would have known it earlier, my poem would have been a little different. Still I am thinking to edit the poem and add a few more lines.
