    Love Smiles


           Early this morning, whilst at The Daily Brew in Cataumet, Massachusetts (my favorite coffee shop on the planet), I thought of this picture, and the phrase "there's a smile in our eyes" came to me. Just that one simple line. Then, I wrote this poem. In, literally, under five minutes. It flowed out of me effortlessly, and I changed very few words or phrases once I put them to the page. When inspiration this powerful hits me, it feels like Creative Divine Intervention. And it brings me to tears. Every. Single. Time. 



    There’s a smile in our eyes
    Born of real love
    It comes from within
    It comes from above

    My heart was so full
    In this moment of joy
    The man that I am
    Living lovingly with the boy

    No conflict
    No strife
    No doubt and no turmoil
    A precious moment in time
    That nothing could spoil

    When I think of all the time I wasted
    Not connecting with my brothers
    I am filled with a sadness
    And a pain like no other

    But that quickly passes
    When I feel our connection
    It’s never too late
    For such delicious redemption

    To those who I love
    Let me say from my heart
    If I’ve pushed you away by my foolishness
    Let me make a fresh start

    When I fall
    I get up
    When I fail
    I go at it again
    This is the way of love
    And it never ends......
