To Smile Awake

Oh, endless smile of child's delight
alighting like a faery's fantasy
of music whispered into winds of time
charming an enchantment in an air
of make-believe that whispers mystery
upon a breezing motion of devotion's ecstasy

Oh, bliss of innocence that plays
just at the edge of known reality
in a concordance of an infinite
entrancing spell of happiness
that lives and breathes to be itself
within the fullness of potentiality

Oh, kiss of dawn that brings tomorrow
endlessly to live within a heart
that simply starts to beat
in an accord of harmony
as rhapsody beings again
in the innocence of childlike delight
that smiles itself awake yet once again . . .
