I See You And Smile



I See You And Smile

I see you and smile at a star
Something so beautiful
A feeling or an experience
Epiphany of sorts
Cosmic coincidence of grace
Pierces my thoughts
Flutters my feelings
Your name grows a flower
In my ordinary soul
Branching out in deep roots
Blooming as a fragrance
Genuine abundant joy.

You have no idea how I feel
Seeing you from a distance
You saying hello is a miracle
You make my heart jump
Seeing your shape
I feel my blood flow with fire
Your eyes sparkle
And a million stars ripple
Knowing you now
Inspires dreams
Words can hardly express
You smiling at me says it all.
