When You Smile

By Aenro Mikko M. Gubatina

Rom Cumagun on location shooting a video for a blog regarding Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall anniversary.

For countless hours I wait thee

Wind howling but silent

Even your shadow I cannot see

My heart stops and tightens

Through rustling trees, I walk the aisle

Counting cobblestones looking down

Light shimmers… thy beauty with a smile

Took away my lips of weary and frown

Sweet and contagious lips of angel

No mere demons should defile

Removed my lonely pulse like a spell

Just one glance when you smile
