I Laughed A Smile
Even the smallest, seemingly insignificant things that we do, like a smile, can actually have a dramatic effect on not just our family and friends, but the world.
Never think: "I'm just one person amongst billions. Nothing I do can make a difference." We need to change that type of attitude to, "Everything I do can change the world." Do it now!
I Laughed A Smile
by John Hansen © 2014
I laughed a smile into the air
It floated down but who knows where,
Perhaps onto another's face
In some war ravaged, distant place.
Maybe somewhere a sleeping child
Was 'midst a pleasant dream and smiled,
Or some old man about to pass
Had smiled and made a breathless gasp.
Perhaps he sighed a final prayer
Which floated gently in the air,
And drifted 'round the world, so wild,
To gently wake the sleeping child.
