Smiles are good for you
Catching a smile
I saw you come walking along the street,
With a cheerful tapping of your feet.
You had such a sweet smile upon your face,
As you walked on by, at quite a pace.
You rushed past me, your mind was elsewhere,
That you hardly knew that I was there.
I will never know just why your sweet smile,
Touched my world for such a little while.
Your happiness was so easy to see,
That it reached within to a part of me.
It brought a smile to me upon this day,
As I carried on, along my own way.
It made me think just how a smile can grow,
From a seed from someone I do not know.
That when you catch a smile, just by chance,
From a passing stranger, from only a glance,
It can cheer you up, so what I shall do,
Is to show a smile, to be caught by you.
