The wastelands of a desert, can be seen for miles and miles,
But the happiness upon a face, is seen, in wondrous smiles!
And gazing at majestic mountains, rising from the earth's floor --
Makes one want to go exploring, all around us, finding more.

More of the beauty of this world -- "look" -- it's right before our eyes!
Don't let the mundane things of life prevail -- overpowering our lives.
Take time to smell the roses, take some time to really "see" --
What a glorious and beautiful place, this "mother earth" of ours can be!
It could be the sun, the moon, the stars -- our very soul within,
A merge of family and of friends -- now where do we begin?
That's easy -- take one smile from your face, transfer it to another --
Presto! -- a chain reaction -- smiles soon "beaming" from brother to brother!

Now wouldn't it be wonderful, to find yourself someday?
Among many smiling faces -- "just listen" -- as they say --
"Here's one for you -- please take it -- put it in your heart --
Keep it there forever, your smile and you will never part!"
