“Looking at me is an almond eyed girl,
Closing her palms and bowing her head.
Her smile a gentle curl,
And her hair has tinge of brownish-red.
She looks at my bags and sees that I am lost,
In a funny way she asks if I needed help with no second thought.
I ask for directions to find my way,
The noise and traffic had led me astray.
In a new land with no friends,
I was starting to wonder how my journey would end.
She saw that I was anxious ,she saw that I was sad
But her little innocent smile didn’t seem so bad.
She led me to a place she called home.
Warm and cozy with a little garden gnome.
A bowl of warm soup and a blanket nest .
She kept checking on me to see if I was taking a rest,
The day came and she took me around,
Her country was beautiful and only beauty was to be found.
When it was time to say good byes.
I saw a little sadness in her almond eyes.
I will return to that place someday.
Hoping to find her smiling in the same way.
