The Present Ever Grows Into Smiles - Poem by Ricardo Antunes

The rain brings and sheds
The tears of the heavens up
Above, you bring the light
For the daffodils to blossom,

As I at a great distance pick
The petals to find the love
I've longed for from past
Lives to the current rain

Of sunshine that comes
With your smile as you in awe
Take strength from love
And friendships alike,

And the sheen and glint
In your smile attracts
The flowers to grow
In your direction,

As I on my own
In suffering as lovelorn
For daffodils to not wilt
In my heart break up

Where the fissures
Of a hard knock life
Cracked and healed
And cracked again ad finitum,

As my love for you is divided
By an age gap of distance,
I as the romantic would wait
For you from this life to the next

In hopes to hold you close
As the winter withers all flora
In a future with me without
The caress of your lips

Pressed up against my own
As I rise from the cold
Winters to resurrect
Into my next life...

As spring gives light smiles
