: -} That Smiley Face Thingy.........

Maybe because it took me years
to learn how
Perhaps because someone gave me the gift
I don't know

But that smiley thingy .......
now finds the end of my line
If I could give you one thing
then that thing is fine

I will admit it ......You have all been
a gift from afar
Oops I smiled .........caught with my hand
in you're cooky jar

Ok...... I'm sorry ........but you're cookies
are very important to me
So here's to you ........a gift
of a smile .......OH ...and it's free !

A smile speaks a thousand words. Even if I don't feel like smiling I smile anyway in hopes to brighten someone's day. I love this (smile).

I gotta say, short, but sweet; I loved it! Great job. I hope we would all feel the same way. Smiles are one thing you can give away all the time and never feel bad about. You might even get some in return.

As usual, it is a pleasure to read your work.

Voted up and awesome!

Ah, yes the smiley faces-necessary in this internet age where you don't have a tone of voice to hear. I see all these smiley faves doing extra things like snorkling or drinking or riding in a boat. But the basic smiley face are winking face are good enough for me. :)
