A Smile and a Look


A Smile and a Look


What to do with a smile

that you freely display?

We can play, we can play

all the games of attraction

and to flirt with reaction

to your lips soft and red

or pretend that instead

I’m a slave to your smile

What to do with a look

that you tenderly give?

I’ll relive and relive

even after your gone

by the night ‘til dawn

I will always remember

how I wish to surrender

my lone heart for a look.
