Smile of an angel

This is my entry for today's 3WW: 

Words were Cajole, Recluse and Temper


As I looked at her, I felt my temper melt away. My anger toward fate and life. When she caught my finger with her tiny little fingers, I couldn't help but smile. My little angel who had forced me out of my recluse. My baby who was now cajoling me to live my life for her. After my wife's death what did I have to look forward to but the smile of this angel?

-------------------------


I dreamt a little dream, tonight.
I saw him whisk him away like a knight.
I saw him pick me up from my recluse sole
I felt him cajole life into my soul
I felt tempers no more, hatred ceased.
I know there is hope, in my dreams, at least.
