It’s so simple to share a smile
Just look at a body and curl your lips
Let something warm spark in your eyes
And watch the other soften ’round the edges.
The days are perfect for that sort of thing
A time for meeting, with arms open wide
Spread hugs and kisses, let clear laughter ring
Welcome their efforts with another of thine.
Hear a baby laugh at the antics of her dog
No sound of cheer with more abandon you’ll find
Lift your hearts free from life’s daily fog
Live in the moments that surround your life.
No heart is alone, no matter how lonely
There’s always a giver around the corner somewhere
If you let your inner world be warm and sunny
You’ll have no dearth of your own smiles to share!
