Give us a smile love

Every time you come in I smile
That fire - lit so long ago - must not die.
The longer you stay the more I glow
You never consider I may be
fully absorbed in my work
We both know that can wait
You don’t stay long
A need may poke her cold head
Through my glow
When I go to you your fire is out
You respond - eyes distant – voice neutral
Then back to curves, graphs marketing patterns
We both know that can’t wait
But I love you, I hear
You are so beautiful so warm
I love knowing you are there
Glowing
You poke the fire that fans the flames and warms the world that jack built.
Give us a smile love
It’s not so bad
It may never happen
You all need me to glow:
Men leering from holes in the road
Fat men, thin men bald men hairy man
Tinkers tailors soldiers sailors
Doctors, dentists candlestick makers
They all know the script.
They’re match ready.
But lately my smiles have faded
My automatic pilot is waning
I’ll still be nice as pie
Just less sweet.
