If you see a woman whose smile can warm the hardest of hearts

If you see a woman whose smile can warm the hardest of hearts,

Who has dark brown eyes that can see your saddest memories,

Point her my way.

If she lets her glorious black hair grow wild and free,

And has palms as soft as a baby’s cheek,

Tell her I’ve been looking for her.

If her kisses warm you like the first rays of the sun on a cold morning,

And her laugh is like the tinkling of wind chimes in the breeze,

Ask her why she’s so far away from me.

If she squints whenever she takes off her glasses,

And she fights for equality among the sexes,

Tell her that I’ve learnt how to say I love her in six different languages.

I’ve learned how to say I love her in six different languages.

Yet none fit as beautifully as her name on my tongue.

If you see a woman whose smile can warm the hardest of hearts,

Tell her that no matter how far away my feet send me,

I’ll find my way back to her.
