A Smile


There is something in a smile
Sometimes a smile cheers you
Sometimes a smile warms you
Sometimes a smile says so much, and sometimes it is nothing more than a curve of the mouth.

Smiles are beautiful when it is truly given
Smiles are precious when it came from the heart
Smiles are comforting when it is kind, and sharp as knife when it is malicious

Give me a real smile from the heart over false compliments, and empty flattery. The world would be a sad place, if a real smile cannot be found anywhere

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
