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)
