Poem: The Ocean Smile

The ocean smile like the sunny sky,

As you stand by my side:

Without you, it seems, I have been,

Traveling, more than a thousand miles,

Without the high spirit, of joy in my life:

When you are present, “The brightest, shiniest,

Star, light up, the mystical night,

And my life, my soul, feel joy & alive!”

Void no longer take residence,

Like a painted masterpiece, hanging solely,

For the world to view,

While the heart cries in disguised:

The ocean smile, with great wave,

Strong, powerful, as a poetic message,

Of a breakthrough, from the repeated cycle,

Broken record — gone bad; There awaits,

Your love, the magnificent crown prize:

The Ocean smile always, while being still,

In the silence; when you are, standing strong,

And there’s, no such thing as losses,

Or a mere goodbye; Only gratitude,

The promise, many blessings;

That have been rewarded each morning,

As I open my beautiful, breathtaking,

Heavenly eyes, with a great heartfelt smile!

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
