Everyday - A Poem by N Daniel


Her gentle smiles remained hidden

behind pursed lips.

Too overwhelmed

by youthful questioning

they still weren't quite ready to share

the timeless wisdom

in her deep brown eyes.

Her ears listened

with thoughtful compassion

that discovered celestial silence

in every waking moment

and her nose whispered quietly on her face

doing it's best not to disturb them.

Her hands were careful

and considerate

because they knew what it was like

to be small and fragile,

and her arms held them in a tender embrace

that promised beauty

to everything that they touched.

Her minature toes just barely

reached the ground

and when they did

her graceful feet followed.

Though coming behind

sometimes felt less significant,

they still cared for each tiny digit

on long, cold winter nights.

Her head was filled

with impossible daydreams,

that saw never-ending dances

of forgotten love stories

and her heart selflessly held onto

all of these things

because it was still living

each and every one of them,
