Her lovely smile has the power to compel poetry. At an age 17 years younger, she’s Mukti Masih – a published poetess, author and successful content writer from India. After a recent exchange, I wrote this poem as I drifted into a daydream…
Every time I see her smile Heaven shines a light on me Happy heart in sweet delight Chasing dreams of what could be On the rhythm of waves Rang a sound from her heart Where the waters of love Know no end, only start On a ship under sail Without map, simply stars And a warm summer breeze With acoustic guitars On a course to the east Currents carry and flow Is this only a dream? Perhaps, yes, I think so Were it not for many miles And the years, so far apart Both day and night - time to share Grand adventures of the heart
