It seems so little but to me it's so much.


A Smile Draws Me Near!
The first thing I notice about someone is their appealing smile.
I sometimes get lost in it and stay there for awhile.
I’m not sure why their smile draws me in so near.
While I’m in, I see other things and find this person’s rare.
I see their gentle hands, I enjoy the twinkles in their eyes.
I love listening to their soft words spoken in between their sighs.
This person drew me to them, by the smile on their face.
That’s not what’s keeping me next to them, that’s not in the chase.
What keeps me here is simple, it’s the person who’s within.
It’s what makes me want to stay here and to be close to them.
It seems I like myself better, when this person is by my side.
This person brings the best out of me, and I feel dignified.
They make me feel such happiness when they are standing by.
They make me feel protected and completely filled with pride.
I hope I do the same for them that they always do for me.
To be a better person, they make me want to be.
So when that smile draws you near, its up to you to ask why.
You can do it if you want to, you can do it if you try.
Written by,
Bonnie May

Love this poem, I lost my happy laughting and smiling person, but this poem brings him back to me. He was just like you said and always smiling and such a good person inside, as you are too. We are supposed to look at the inside of a person and not judge by the outside we first see. I will do that from now on too. Thanks for the advice.

And who, may I ask, is the guy next to you in the picture?

Nice, smiley words to inspire all who read.
I found especially, when my Dad was in a Nursing Home, a smile to a resident there brought happy responses.

Love and smiles, :) ;) 8)

Bonnie, a smile is so simple to give and it does bring joy and happiness to those who we offer it to and I've often thought of how many we touch during a day when we offer them a smile. A nice write. I loved the photo.
