Waif

Gentle waif of summer’s dream,

Your face shines with a smile of glee

With voice of sweetest laughter

The twinkle in your eyes wink at me


Such joy lives within you

Sweet as morning dew

That light that shines so brightly

Shines from deep within thee


I haven’t lived the days you do

And I know not what troubles you

But the warmth that you exude

Saves me from the winter breeze


Like tulips in bloom your lips part in smile

Childlike innocence in your eyes

If angels lived on this cruel earth

You, an angel, are sure to be


So I write you this gift of rhyme

For the only gift I have are words

May your beauty endure till the end of time

And may the one to gaze upon it…be me
