Teach Me How To Smile
 
 My son, teach me how to smile.
So many years polluting my soul
I've forgotten how to smile.
I keep a catalogue now
office smile, party smile, home smile
barring my teeth like monkeys do;
trying to out smile
with fellow 'future generation'.

My son, teach me how to smile.
My chins ache,
from constantly holding the plastered portraits.
The innocence is gone
twinkles, laughter, smirks too
there is no distinguishing;
each is worse than the other,
Da Vinci would have been proud.

My son, please teach me how to smile.
I see toddlers running and laughing;
laughing - the word spears my heart.
I want to smile again
kissing, poem-ing, joking
should release endorphins again
I pray my son, keep your smile
and teach me how to be a child again.

Miles of Smiles Miles of Smiles - by Bruce Lansky Oops! Three coffee cups my mother loved lie shattered on the floor. Three ripe tomatoes splattered when they hit the kitchen door. Three jumbo eggs are scrambled. But they're not on a plate. Three loaves of bread are crumbled. I'll use the crumbs for bait. Three Barbie dolls have lost their heads. Three pepper mills are smashed. Three goldfish died while doing flips. Three model airplanes crashed. Three lettuce heads unraveled. Three onions came unpeeled. My parents didn't know who did it till my sister squealed. My parents are befuddled. They think that I've gone nuts. But there's a simpler explanation: I'm a juggling klutz. Bruce Lansky  [ send green star]

Smile
 
 Hey what's with the sad face?
Nothing can be so sad for your beautiful face.

Share with me your sadness.
I will show you only gladness.

A problem shared is a problem halved.
See, it's not so bad, you can smile, it's not hard.

A smile is infectious, so pass it along.
It could be in a poem, or in a song.

A smile makes your heart sing,
Makes you feel warm inside, gives it a ring.

So remember my smile, as I will yours.
For your sadness, you will no longer endure.

A Reason to Smile Today
 
 I saw a reason to smile today
when I saw a butterfly flutter its wings around my way.

I saw a reason to smile today,
when I heard the children laughing and playing
under the warm sun of May.

I saw a reason to smile today,
when I looked up and saw no clouds of gray.

But most of all,
I saw a reason to smile today,
when I saw you pass by, which completed my day.

Smile All The While
 
 send out a smile today,
see it being returned
lighten someone's burden
your love won't be spurned

its difficult to smile
when the days cares lie heavy
but the result is really worth it
youll soon be smile savvy

everyone is harried
while rushing about by day
a cheery wave, a happy smile
has so much to say

for the shy ones, takes courage
to smile at someone unknown
but try it and you will see,
how cheerily its condoned.

a smile makes you feel happy,
give you a warm glow inside,
makes the day seem lighter
and worries to subside.

so lighten up all you serious ones,
and smile away your cares,
you give one., you'll get one free,
even ward off someone's tears.

resolve to be happy,
spread cheer to near and dears,
work harder, sincerely and happily,
smile are contagious, not tears.

Come smile at me again
 
 

Come smile at me
come smile at me again.
And use the only smile you have,
the selfless and exquisite one.
And keep your eyes on me.
I'd like to study
the nuances of your smile.

Come look at me.
Come look at me again.
And use the only look you have:
The one of pure
Manuka Honey.
And keep your look on me.
I'd like to study
all the markings on your face.

Come close to me.
Come close to me again.
And hold your warm and tender body close to mine.
Come closer yet.
I'd like to study
YOU,
and hope to never graduate.

Just a Friendly Gesture
 
 Just a friendly gesture,
Just a little smile,
Can save a life;
Can change the mind
Of somebody who
Thinks little of himself.
Just a loving motion,
Just a caring hug,

Just smile, just say hi,
Just be kind, just give a little hug,
Just love people, and be yourself,
Just a friendly gesture
Can help along the way.

Just a friendly gesture,
Just a little greeting,
Can cause a smile,
Changing your whole day;
Just be who you are,
But be kind and caring.
Just a friendly gesture
Helped me.

Just smile, just say hi,
Just be kind, just give a little hug,
Just love people, and be yourself,
Just a friendly gesture
Can help along the way.

Medicine of Pain
 
 A smile is a medicine of pain
A smile is a power that gains
Lots of joy and happiness for you
To make you happy and lively too

Because smile is a powerful force
And a simple and an easy source
To bring you near the joys that're far
And to cross fainly the trouble's bar

Because smile has the power to mold
And in everyone's life it surely holds
An important place in life's ship
So try to get its hold and a grip

So when in life you're given a test
Then try to do it in the way best
And spend this time with joy for a while
with a gift of a rare and a precious smile.

Smile
 
 Smile when fear besets you,
Smile when it seems God forgets you;
Smile for He never forsakes you;
Never-though a million troubles overtake you.

Smile when the going rough,
Smile when things are tough.
For you have a Loving Friend
Who will be with you till the end!

So just smile.

The Sunshine in a Smile
 
 Have you ever noticed
The brilliance of a smile?
A smile that’s meant for only you
Can make your day worthwhile.

It doesn’t cost you anything
To smile at someone who
Could get a little sunshine from
A smile that comes from you.

And when you smile at someone else
It makes them happy, too,
You’ll find the smile you gave to them
Will come right back to you.

Something I Often Notice

 There is something
I often notice in God.
Do you know what it is?
He cries and tries
And tries and cries
For the transformation-light
Of futility's hush: man.
There is something
I often notice in man.
Do you know what it is?
He smiles and flies
And flies and smiles
Like a cosmic god
Of freedom-skies

Grandma Loved Jesus
 
 She labored hard for fifty years.
Not missing a single day.
She serviced her God with love.
Now she's a flower in God's bouquet.

The pain is gone from her body now.
No tears run down her cheeks.
For her smile is lighting up heaven.
While all the angels weep.

She laid upon her bed.
Arms folded across her chest.
With a smile upon her face.
She knew Jesus would bring her rest.

Grandma loved Jesus
She was picked to be a flower in
God's bouquet.
Grandma loved Jesus and holy is His name.

When your Smiling

When you’re smilin’....keep on smilin’
The whole world smiles with you
And when you’re laughin’....keep on laughin’
The sun comes shinin’ through

But when you’re cryin’.... you bring on the rain
So stop your frownin’....be happy again
Cause when you’re smilin’....keep on smilin’
The whole world smiles with you

(instrumental break)
Oh when you’re smilin’....keep on smilin’
The whole world smiles with you
Ah when you’re laughin’....keep on laughin’
The sun comes shinin’ through

Now when you’re cryin’.... you bring on the rain
So stop that sighin’....be happy again
Cause when you’re smilin’....just keep on smilin’
And the whole world gonna smile with

The great big world will smile with

The whole wide world will smile with you

THE FLOWERS GOD CREATED!

Spring Tulips

How lovely the flowers God created!

Was making them, I wonder, fun?

Did perhaps the Father SMILE

As He made them one by one?

I'm sure He fashioned each with care,

As He thought of us the while;

So even on the darkest days

They seem to mirror the Father's SMILE!

I know they make me SMILE a bit

When I pick a choice bouquet.

It could never be so lovely a world

If God had skipped His "flower making" day!

A SMILE'S A GIFT YOU GIVE YOURSELF August 28, 2006 10:00 PM

A smile's a gift you give yourself

By giving it away.

Because it comes right back to you

In a warm and friendly way.

A smile can speak a thousand words

Wherever you may be,

In simple, unassuming ways

That anyone can see.

A smile shows you understand

When hearts fill with pain,

Fot it sheds a little sunshine

Where there was only rain.

A smile spins a cheerful web

That binds us one and all

With threads of human kindness

Wherever they may fall.

A smile's a rose that when returned

Becomes a Spring bouquet...

A smile's a gift you give yourself

By giving it away.

There's Sunshine In a Smile

by Helen Steiner Rice

Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain, Laughter and pleasure, teardrops and rain.

All days can't be bright but it's certainly true, There was never a cloud the sun didn't shine through.

And you'll find when you smile your day will be brighter, And all your burdens will seem so much lighter.

For each time you smile you will find it's true, Somebody, somewhere, will smile back at you.

And nothing on earth can make life more worthwhile Than the sunshine and warmth of a beautiful smile!
