I smile as I awake on a beautiful morning with the smell of
breakfast in the air
I smile when I see my family laughing, talking and living
free of care
I smile when I am depressed and I smile when I am angry
I smile with a friend and I smile with the strangers upon the streets
I smile, frequently, with a loved one because I am filled with joy
I smile with the children, spreading my happiness to each
little girl and boy
I smile, not to hide feelings, but to show my mental state is stable
I smile when I accomplish things, I smile when I'm unable
Have you smiled lately, at a joke or just because you can?
Have you read a book that made you smile or have you smiled
at some beautiful land?
When I was born, I smiled, I've been smiling since a child.
Even when the casket closed and the lights went out
