When You Smile

Ugonna Wachuku

 

Whispering waterfalls and
streams tell me beautiful
stories in my dreams.

 

Silent hearts sing me simple
songs of glory and hope.
In my dreams; in my tears
of joy and glad sorrow, I
watch you follow the river's
pathway to lands unknown; to
lush landscapes undefiled.

 

I watch you tell moonlight
stories in village squares
at home. I watch you follow  
nature's heartbeat. I watch
you dream new, loving dreams
for humanity:

 

There will be uplifting songs
from deep ancestral warriors
and villagers. In my tears; in
my joyful sadness, I watch you
take my hand:

 

I feel your presence. I feel
your love. I feel your inspiring
breath and subtle power because
when you smile, I am made whole.

 

When you smile, I behold a whole

new world on moonlit nights and
brilliant blue clouds. That smile
is all I need to run creatively
wild.

 

And tonight, I will be at
the village square once again,
waiting for you and that
inspiring

smile

you

bring.

Oh Ugonna!   


When I return from time to time to quench my thirst at your silver
stream, I find this tranquility so good, so soothing, for my soul.

Thank you for your "beautiful stories" for my dreams.

Kindest regards
