Smiles Do It Every time

Updated on February 25, 2017

Take a look outside,

your window -

the day may not be sunny,

but if you put on a great big smile,

it will turn out fine.

Look at the birds,

doing a tango in the trees,

singing at the top of their lungs,

that should make you laugh.

Smiles do it every time,

they warm hearts

and make people

smile in return.

You can be sure -

that even in the saddest of moments,

a smile can say so much.

Reach out a helping hand,

to those in need

and give them your brightest smile,

you’ll see how great,

life can really be.

Smiles do it every time,

to even living creatures,

which in turn -

will react with love toward you.

Don’t ever let your friends,

sit about with frowns,

take those frowns

and turn them upside down.

Smiles do it every time,

they can make any day special.

Never forget to smile,

first thing in the morning

and take that smile -

to bed with you at night.

      This morning when we drove to our favorite barista for coffee, Bev smiled and waved at a homeless person.

      Huge gift for that person!

      My way of saying I loved this poem.

      Absolutely "never forget to smile". It radiates the innermost life imposed by the Creator into human being at the creation.

      Definitely, smile makes us happier so does those we smile at.

      "Don’t ever let your friends,

      sit about with frowns,

      take those frowns

      and turn them upside down" this was my favorite.

      Absolutely! smile does it every time even if we r sad we should learn to smile and we wont realise how quickly we turn out to be happy.

      Thank You

      Let us just walk on this widest path,

      Where miles become miniscule,

      Journey becomes a cherished endeavour,

      A smile can make anyone run an extra mile.

      Excellent poem gypsy. :-)

      Thank you Manatita.

      Made me warm all over to acknowledge a homeless person with a smile. Glad you enjoyed this Bill. Smiles are free and we must give away as many as we can.

      Glad you enjoyed Ruby. I have no idea about the videos. They play or they don't I can just post them and see.

      Thank you Whonu blessings to you too.

      Smiles will do it every time Michael.

      You welcome Ms.Dora

      You welcome itsmesudiksha

      Thank you Hari.

      I love the feeling that goes both ways for the smiler and the person that is smiled upon. A genuine happiness that goes far deeper than the skin. Thank you for sharing. More smiles coming your way.

      I began my day with one smile and another soon followed. My wife smiled and I think our cat Charlotte did too. Have a wonderful and happy afternoon.

      A lovely poem and a reminder of the advantages of a smile. When we smile our 'feel good' emotions - serotonin - kick in.
