A Smile


That little smile in your face, a gift better than gold,
Will break the stony barriers between strangers,
Will mean a world of difference to someone,
Will warm up the chill in someone’s heart,
A beacon of light in a world of darkness,
A first brick to your dream castle,
A smile is an unspoken gentlest words,
The universal language of hearts.
