Let Us Smile - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

I feel too old when I am crying,
when smile I look like a teen aged boy,
don't come to me whenever I cry,
play if you can with a laughing toy.

One thing you can do sweetheart anytime,
you can titillate, can wipe the tears,
can make me smile like a naughty juvenile,
can erase at least my forty eight years!

(About forty nine years ago I was married)

    So true! When we cry and are in sorrow, the wrinkles on our face grow so marked. But when we smile, the face will attain a new sheen and we will look much younger! The need for a smiling face and the effect of a pleasant attitude to life are beautifully expressed! (Report) Reply

    Do not interact with the sad, old part of me; come enjoy the young boy that is still there when he shows himself (Report) Reply

    Not only children and grand children, your straggles will also be erased. (Report) Reply
