Smile: A Poem
Life without a smile wouldn't be worth living
it's a soul's expression of celebrating joy
and also a gesture of our forgiving
for anything in life with a power to annoy.
Pleasure that we see on a baby's face
tells us smile goes deeper than a thought
as we don't need words for a warm embrace
that would make a baby smile a lot.
Smile quickly changes chemistry in us
every cell thriving on its meaning
wiping off all worry and all fuss
while giving us an instant inner cleaning.
It is a part of our beauty and charm
and even a monkey looks better with a smile
it works like a balsam on every harm
adding to generosity of an extra mile.
And yes, it could be phony although with effect
as every politician knows in his career
but in eyes of a smart voter so easy to detect
for smile is only smile when a heart is near.
