World You Make Me Smile


World you make me smile

As I look all around

A baby’s chubby face

A friendly glance


World you make me smile

Watching playful pups and kittens

Colorful butterflies flitting in the air

Hearing birds sing in the trees


World you make me smile

When skies are blue

And the sun shines so warm

When children laugh and play


World you make me smile

Looking upon a shiny glittering sea

Warm golden sand beneath my feet

Seagull cries from above


World you make me smile

As clouds like sailing ships go by

Trees waving leaves in the breeze

Nature all around


World you make me smile

At any time in any season

Summer when in full bloom

Spring as nature awakes


Fall when leaves turn to lovely colors

Winter when the first snowflakes begin to fall

When the winds blow about

And the air is fresh and clean


World you make me smile

There’s such a lot to see

The tops of mountains way up high

And flowering meadow carpets below


World you make me smile

All across the wide globe

Countries to explore

People to greet


World you make me smile

When I get a note from a dear friend

When someone says thanks

And I can lend a helping hand


World you make me smile

When I open up my e-mail

And find hubs to read and comments

From all my dear hubber friends


World you make me smile

Despite the anger, violence and wars

If only everyone would stop to think

And let love flow into their hearts


Then perhaps we could all say

World you make me smile

And help one another

To a brighter tomorrow


World you make me smile

Make everyone smile with you

Make each day a whole lot better

And a shining new future to see


This came as inspiration on my hubby Martin's B-day on July 19th when his son Andris called from England. He lives there with his wife Vika. They called to say congrats and informed him he is going to be a grandfather.

Lovely poem Gypsy and congrats on the new blessing on the way, too! It's the promise of new life that suddenly opens our eyes to our wonderful world around us. Love the pic of the pig with a rose in his mouth, gave me a good chuckle! The song is one of my all time favorites. This was a sweet start to my morning!! Well done!

Gypsy - This poem makes me smile! And it couldn't have come at a better moment. The tragedy in Colorado makes me appreciate the words written here. Thank you for helping to instill the goodness that is in the world. Its hard to see it when such unthinkable tragedy occurs.

Blessings to you and yours and thanks again.
