Remember To Smile
A smile can light a candle,
In a lonely heart,
It's like a sunny morning,
That warms a new day's fresh start.
Like a new mother's smile that cradles
Her baby with pure love,
Or a father's smile when he gives his young son,
A new baseball glove.
When we think about the world's sad woes,
The hungry and the poor...
We often do what is expected,
But a smile will open the door.
There's problems with acceptance
Of so many strangers on our shore,
But a warm smile can often lighten,
Someone's day as never before.
Sometimes a smile is like a rainbow,
Shining through a misty cloud,
That cheers an aggravated soul,
In the midst of an unseeing crowd.
Remember to smile today,
Every where you go...
It may not solve all the problems,
But it will soften life's not so gentle blows.
A smile is good medicine,
It can turn dark days into blue:
And when you see the sun come out,
You know God, our heavenly Father,
Is smiling down on you.

It gives me a warm feeling in my heart to write poetry. I am a "Golden Ager" shut-in and writing keeps my mind busy with something I've done ever since I was a child, and it's my way of sharing our LORD with who ever comes to visit. Thanks for reading my poetry - I'd love to hear your comments. May God richly bless you. Send emails to: EvaYoung @ SkyWriting.Net
