Smile, Smile, Smile

A smile will pick you up
When you are down.
It’ll make you feel better—
Turn your day around.
So get yourself a smile,
And get rid of the frown.
Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile at the sky,
Smile at the sun.
Smile at the flowers
Just for fun.
Smile if you’re dragging
Or on the run.
Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile when you’re happy
And when you are sad.
Smile when you’re grumpy,
It’ll make you feel glad.
It could be the best day
You’ve ever had
If you Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile at the sky,
Smile at the sun.
Smile at the flowers
Just for fun.
Smile if you’re dragging
Or on the run.
Smile. Smile. Smile.
Do yourself a favor and smile

Hmmm.... The importance of a gold in two hands.... Mother! Lovely! Joshua.
Deeply emotional. Nice poem.
For her sake everything can be borne despite the rush and blows that may pass like the fury of a whirlwind, and the swiftness of lightning and the result will be the same as jewels burned would culminate in jewels.......outstanding..........thanks for sharing
