Smile It Is Free

© Unknown

Published on July 2008

A smile is cheer from you to me,
the cost is nothing, it's given for free.
They console the weary and gladden the sad.
And can make someone happy when they are mad.
Unlike blessings in which we pray
it's the only thing you keep when you give it away.

A well known version of this poem with an Author Unknown goes like this:

A smile is cheer to you and me
It comforts the weary, gladdens the sad
consoles those in trouble, good or bad.
To rich and poor, beggar or thief,
it’s free to all of any belief.
A natural gesture of young and old
cheers on the faint, disarms the bold.
Unlike most blessings for which we pray,
it’s one thing we keep when we give it away.

This poem is very touching .. It really means a lot to every Bestfriends out there. Never let anyone ruin your friendships because you never know how important to you . Especially when they are always there standing next to you. Friendship is worth a thousand dollars . Losing them is like someone stealing your whole money ..
