A Moments Smile

By Taher Rokadia

A million words that haven’t touched my paper
A thousand thoughts that haven’t crossed my mind
So many things I want to tell you
So many words lost in translation
Like a familiar stranger
A distant light where hope was lost
You shine so beautiful through the darkness
If you only knew
Words are a dime a dozen but true feelings so few
But they spawn from deep within
Where my demons happily reside
Risking a million tears for a moments smile.
