The Day She Smiled



The day she paused 

to listen...

to the little bird 

singing in her balcony,

to the rustle of 

the leaves 

in the soft breeze,

to the sound of rain,

to the music orchestrated

by mother nature herself!

The day she paused

to watch...

the sun rising and setting 

in all its splendour,

the new dawn 

unravelling the wonders 

of nature all around her!

The day she paused 

to watch...

the clouds sailing by

in the blue sky,

in shapes that she 

imagined them to be,

the butterflies 

that flew around

in their colourful best,

the lambent moonlight

casting silver shadows 

on the far off mountains...

The day she realised

that being kind and loving

brings happiness,

that happiness

is all around her,

filling her 

in more ways than one!

that happiness

can be found

even in the

smallest things in life!

It was the day

she smiled, a smile

that lit up her soul!

For she found herself...
