It was one of those days that nothing seemed to be going right.
My mind filled with racing thoughts
going different ways
Questions, questions with seemly no answers
as I pushed through the crowd
of wherever I was going.
Suddenly in my own world
I looked up
and there you were
passing me ever so quickly.
The smile that you gave me took my breath away.
A stranger’s smile in a maddening world.
There was such kindness in that smile of yours.
The warmest of feelings overcame me.
Peace and Joy was brought to my racing heart.
Long after you were gone
I tried to remember
what you looked like.
Were your eyes Blue or Brown?
All that remained in my mind’s eye
was the memory of that very special and endearing smile.
A smile that brought a smile to my own lips.
With a nod of my head
I gave thanks and appreciation
for this gift from a stranger.
Long after this time
a strange thought came to my mind.
Could angels be walking this earth
to remind each of us
that love can be
the gift of the day?
