A Smile is Worth So Much

for smile

A smile is worth so much –

that is a fact of life.

It means the world to those we love

and reach out to with a gentle touch.


On a gray day,

when we can’t seem to find a way –

to be happy.

Let’s try and see what a smile can do –

it can even express I love you.


The sun doesn’t have to be shining,

when people all about you are smiling.

The shared joy they give to one another –

is worth more than any gold will ever be.


Days when it seems there is no one about,

days when you feel like on a deserted island.

Then you take a walk

and discover something to smile about.


Suddenly the day,

has changed for the better.

Just don’t lose your smile –

bring it with you to share.


One of the most precious of smiles,

is the smile of a baby or child you love.

One of the most darling of smiles,

is the smile of the person who shares your life.


Smiles can take away the rain

and make dark clouds have those silver linings.

Smiles can make what is ordinary,

turn into something special.


So for every time –

when we feel so sad and down.

Reach out to friends and family,

with one smile begin a chain reaction.


Smiles that make the heart glow,

are smiles that say thank you.

Smiles the make the heart beat faster,

are smiles that say you’re my love..


Anyway you look at it –

a smile is worth so much.

So go ahead and make your day worthwhile

and go forth with a great big smile.
