Smile


If at times you feel you want to cry.
And life seems such a trial.
Above the clouds there’s a bright blue sky
So make your tears a smile.

As you travel on life’s way
With its many ups and downs
Remember it’s quite true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns.

Among the world’s expensive things
A smile is very cheap
And when you give a smile away,
You get one back to keep.

So when friends have sadness on their face
And troubles round them piled
The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.

A simple word
A gentle smile
Dissolves my pain
The bitter bile.

All this time I searched in vain
I thought something was missing.
A thousand smiles I missed a day
A wasted lifetime wishing.

I have many a beautiful reasons,
To wake each day and smile.
The smallest things that make me proud,
The list would stretch a mile.

Happiness comes at times to all
But sadness comes unbidden
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.
(Yea, I do this)
