May 8th

"Don't ever say you're on your way down,
God gave you style and gave you grace
And put a smile upon your face"
Cold Play
After a day of reflection yesterday,
today is going to be a day for smiling.
********
Smiling
Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin
When he smiled I realized
I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile
then I realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin,
don't leave it undetected
Let's start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!
Everyone needs a smile!
