Remember to Keep Smiling

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


A smile is like a ray of sun,

after a rainy day.

Like a flower,

when it bursts into bloom,

dancing in the summer breeze.

Even if tears threaten to fall,

somewhere up above,

is a cloud with a silver lining.

A smile will shelter you,

from unhappiness

and keep your heart from breaking.

It means so much more,

than all the gold on earth.

Just one smile so very bright,

can light up hundreds of others,

that respond in kind -

like candle flames flickering

When you feel that things,

have gone astray,

just think of happier times

and light up your face -

with a glowing smile.

It will chase away,

the rain when it starts to fall,

make you content to daydream -

until a rainbow stretches across the sky.

Smile and the world will smile with you,

too much sorrow,

too much heartbreak,

so smile and you’ll see,

that there will be -

a brighter tomorrow following yesterday.
