you walked into the room
immediately i was aware of my tatty hair and mismatched clothes.
then you smiled at me
and that was all i could think of.
my cloudy skies had a rainbow.
you went on to your job and i to mine
i spent the rest of the day
trying to get another glimmer of your heart.
it was months before i had another chance.
you were stunning.
again i knew my hair and clothes were wrong.
then you smiled at me -
all of the sudden i mattered
not my appearance
your stunning beauty didn't compare
you looked at hearts.
saw and loved pain
and inspired to hope.
