<3 poem

Sometimes, at work, when I feel down.
I get right up and walk around.
From west to east. From south to north.
I straighten my back and just go forth.
My purpose on this journey mild?
Simple dear, just to see you smile.

Your smile is an amazing thing you see.
Not just for you, it even reaches me.
It makes me feel that things are fine,
The world all right, the people kind.
It wakes me up when I feel drained
It makes me love you all over again.

And sometimes when I know you’re low
You’re stressed at work, no place to go.
Stuck at your desk and strapped for time…
And I thought, “Maybe just this little rhyme…
Will help her in some little way
Light up her face, brighten her day
Make her think of me and my warm embrace
Bring that brilliant smile back to her face.
