Smile

Surprising it is.
Even mysterious my life is.
So many kaleidoscopic mistakes I made
Didn’t ruin my life completely.
Without a single good thing I did,
My life is still decent.
A miracle you can name it.
Just like you smile at kids who
Keep tripping over the same rock
Over and over again,
A smile is the only good thing I can give
To my own life.
This smile would be the only thing
Jesus and I share if
He would smile at my ragged life.
My hope builds a nest on Jesus’ smile.
