How to Measure a Smile

Posted in Happy Poems, Poems with tags , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2013 by Myra's Circle

A smile is ill humour,

And memories to spare,

When head’s hot as a fever,

And close to despair.

A smile is a medicine,

One to heal the heart,

It takes care of all the sins,

Of the souls that depart.

A smile is for the people that care,

A family or,

The best friend who is there.

A smile is a disguise,

For sadness to wear,

When you’re not feeling wise,

And fate’s hard to bear.

A smile is the sunrise,

For those who have none,

What would not be seen otherwise,

When all else is done.

When all else is through,

And naught’s worth your while,

Then this, is what you do,

To measure a smile.

Insomnia

Tiredness overwhelms me,

Pain hard to bear,

Sleeping is evermore impossible.
