Your Smile - Poem by Heather Burns

Your smile

captured my attention

slowly embroidered your name

upon my heart

filling a vacancy.

    Such apparent simplicity hides a wealth of meaning. After reading this wonderful poem several times I have grown to love this poem. It reminds us to remember the powerful of our smiles, helps us imagine our smiles embroidering our names on the hearts of those who receive them and know how important it is to fill those vacant spaces. It takes great skill to express so much in so few words. (Report)Reply
