I smile for You

I smile for you.

I smile for your fears, I smile for your tears,
I smile for your pain, I smile when no one is around to hold your hand.

I smile for the darkness in your heart, and I smile when you are far from home and land,
I smile when you get lost, I smile for your diseases,
I smile for your old and shaky hand, I smile for your angry mood.

I smile for your love that is not returned, I smile when you lose all your posessions.
I smile when you fall down, and I smile when you lay on the ground.

I smile for the sickness covering the world, and I smile for the crises we are flooded by,
I smile for the horror and terror around you, I smile for the cold wind embracing your shivering body.
I smile for the dirt and dust you live in, I smile for the unbearable heat that suffocates your breath,
I smile for all the nightmares that haunts you, I smile for the dark dreams that scare you in daylight.

I smile for the waves washing your life away, and I smile for the dying animals.
I smile for the pain you cause to others, I smile for your forgotten brothers.
I smile for your sister’s dream that she gave up on, I smile for the lost of your parents youth.
I smile for your last breath, and I smile for the sunrise on the day that you are gone.

…I smile for you to not lose hope, I smile for you to not lose faith.
I smile for you to believe, and I smile for you to love.
I smile for you to think, that there is still light in this world.
I smile to give you strength, and I smile because you matter.
I smile to take away your pain, I smile to take away your fears.

I smile when I hold your old and shaky hand, and I smile when you don’t smile for me.

I smile in the darkest  of nights, when the rain falls down, I scream silently in pain and feel my heart breaking, for all the reasons that I smile.

Small Moments of Magic

Our eyes meet and for a small second the noise goes silent and I feel the warmth of your look. Unprepared for that familiar feeling, I look away only to disguise my joy that blossoms in a smile. Nothing and everything happened for a split second. Pain is gone, and a dream is born. I turn back to search for your look, which already went missing. The noise returns and all goes back to what it was before. For a split second, when our eyes met, I believe our souls reached out to ask for a dance, yet, the human body was much to blind to realize the magic of that moment, to stop and let the music play. Instead we rushed to the next destination, to where we believe that we must be heading to, only to understand, much too late, that we just missed out.

Much too often, we do not recognize a magical moment until it has passed. We keep being distracted by everything and nothing, that we miss the essentials of life. The colors, the smells, the laughs, the touch, the love and all the magic we are surrounded with, yet blind towards. We are deaf for music of the soul and we are blind for the palette of colors that life is painted with.

We forget the names of friends from the past, we fail to recognize the faces of past loved ones, and we regret what once used to make us smile. We don’t cherish those small moments of magic that bring the sunshine into our life. With every day, we are one day short. We lose time for money, we exchange love for views, we forget and ask to forgive. We end up alone, because we miss those moments, as we rush through life and forgetting to listen to the soul, asking for a dance, a tune to be shared with others. We miss it all. We rush. We are mute and blind. When did we go so wrong? Will our eyes ever meet again in a moment like that? Can it take away my pain and begin that dream again? Can I believe in magic? Did my soul not come back after I turned down that last dance? Did I miss my last moment of magic?
