Let’s Smile Awhile (poem)

Updated on September 6, 2014

Let’s smile awhile and let our worries stray

Let’s settle in the arms of Joy and love

It’s here we’ll find the reason for the day

It’s where we share what heaven is made of


Let’s free a kiss to find out where it leads

Let’s free our dreams if only for this while

It’s here we’ll find a freedom from all creeds

It’s where our love is nested in a smile


Tomorrow’s tears must find some place to hide

Some place the glow of love won’t put them out

Won’t put won’t hide our reasoning aside

Reasoning that a smile can conquer doubt


Let’s smile awhile and settle in what’s true

It’s here we’ll find the reason I love you

      How I love reading your work. How I have missed it.

      What a splendid day it would be if I were to sit with my mad hatter over some english breakfast tea.

      My grandmother played this song. Thank you for bringing me one of such few memories I have of her.
