Capture A Smile

In a frozen Kodak moment in time
You must seek to follow your heart & shine
Built on a promise of inner beauty
A picture is worth one thousand words
To the fine lens of a lonesome child
It's in an opened door and the call of the wild
Through the distant clouds it will appear

I shed a single tear to numb the inner pain
Not having you in my arms is driving me insane
Through a tourist out on vacation
A beautiful couple on there wedding day
Took a solemn vow to bow the knee to pray
Capture a smile from a service man
An altar boy lighting a candle

From a singer down at the lounge
It's in the inner beauty of a woman
To capture a smile cause you know all the while
Happiness extends from a smile
A warm hospitality toward a stranger in need

Review Request (Intensity): 
Please use care (this is a sensitive subject for me, do not critique harshly)
Editing stage: 


You have written a poem that leads from disparate subjects brought together to conclude with the power of a smile. This is a subject dear to my heart. Thank you.
