innocent smile

if I could but see
one more time
the light that met my eyes
when first they opened
as I lay my head
upon mother’s bosom

on that day of my birth
when warmth radiated
upon my face
with ebullient joy
seeing innocent smiles
of those hovering
over me  

it was not the light
of the Sun or
of the day but
the light emitting
from the aura
of love

might this be the light
seen in the mind’s eye
when life’s breath
ceases in the incarnate
being and its soul
is touched by
the universal spirit

if this be it
then I wish to be
embraced by this
light and once more
feel the warmth
of its smile
