Take a moment to smile, just here in this place,
And after a while, it will cheer up your face.
Now spread it around for anyone to see,
Let it be easily found by others, for free!
If your smile finds another, that it can reach out to,
Then you can help each other, on this day, to get through.
For a smile will bring hope, in those times of great sorrow,
Helping us to cope and find a better tomorrow.
Take a moment to smile, let it enter within,
When facing a sad trial, it will help you to win.
It will lighten your load, releasing your sadness,
Brightening up life’s road, with a touch of gladness.
For a smile can help all, both inside and out,
Gives us strength to stand tall, helps us to tackle our doubt.
If it is too hard to do, just go for a grin,
Then let it seep through you, and your smile will begin.
