The Modest Smile - Poem by Justin Reamer

I see you in the morning,
Conversing happily,
It is no wonder why you are blessed,
Since I act so snappily.

I see you as gregarious,
Talking with your friends,
I see you happy,
As you always will be,
Until the very end.

When you look at me,
You give me a modest smile,
But all I can is look at you,
And enjoy you all the while.

When I notice the details,
In your delicate face,
I see heaven's light,
When I see your smile,
I see the angels' might.

I notice your long dark hair,
Going down your shoulders,
As delicate as you may seem,
You may just move boulders.

I notice your deep brown eyes,
For they never shimmer,
For they are lively and ablaze,
They are never yet the dimmer.

I notice your cheeks of rosy red,
For they are as bright as the sun,
I never knew what to expect,
Except that they are one.

I notice your long lashes,
Lashes of pure joy,
I could say nevermore,
That I shan't be coy.

I notice your shining aura,
An aura of nature's love,
I notice that it lasts forever,
'Tis as sweet as a dove.

I notice your incorruptible heart,
'Tis a heart of gold,
The always spoke of someone,
Who loved until they got old.

I notice your pure soul,
A soul not meant for sin,
A soul that rejoices,
That leaves a big, wide grin.

I notice your optimism,
A positive mindset that never falters,
It thinks of the plus sides,
And never, ever alters.

I notice you kindness,
For you love your enemies, too,
For your mother always told you,
To tine ownself, be true.

I notice your intellect,
Smartness as it seems,
For wisdom came along with it,
When I see your sheen.

I see your passion,
For everyone who loves,
And you love everyone,
Who is as graceful as a dove.

I see as a work of God,
One who's never tainted,
I see you as an angel,
One who's never fainted.

You will be rewarded,
With your modesty,
We know humility,
Is the best thing we shall be.
