Yesterday I saw that look on your face again
the one that's always told me you were so glad.
It had been so long since I had seen that look
for inside you had been way to long sad.

The twinkle had returned to those
deep beautiful blue eyes,
and a smile had washed away
all of the tears we had cried.

You said that today you were happy
and that you were feeling fine,
and we both smiled and laughed...
as we both learned to take it....
one day at a time.

On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

I know this feeling so very well.
It's true, you can take only one day at the time and when it's a good day, just be happy.

This gets to my bones deep, thank you

Amen.

Live for love. Without love, you don't live.

and a smile had washed away
all of the tears we had cried.

as we both learned to take it....

===========================
GS..this poem just makes me SMILE ...
its so sweet and sincere...
and that last line just sums it all up
sometimes love just needs space and time
just to let it and us simply be..
very cool and wise poem, poet poetess gentle  

We wish ourselves beautiful,
we cry in the night.
Its not the love you fear ...
its the fall from the height.
