Life Lesson Poem

What a smile can do

Keep On Smiling

© Alexandra Skiathitis
If at times you feel you want to cry.
And life seems such a trial.
Above the clouds thereís a bright blue sky
So make your tears a smile.

As you travel on lifeís way
With its many ups and downs
Remember itís quite true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns.

Among the worlds expensive things
A smile is very cheap
And when you give a smile away,
You get one back to keep.

Happiness comes at times to all
But sadness comes unbidden
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.

So when friends have sadness on their face
And troubles round them piled
The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.

The end
