A Smile is a Wonderful Gift


A smile costs nothing,
But is an easy way to show loving,
A beautiful handout,
To take away doubt.

A smile opens eyes,
To star studded skies,
Lighting up the dark,
With heavenly sparks.

A smile is the butterfly,
A friend nearby,
Bringing colour to the day,
That before appeared grey.

A smile is sunlight,
To warm the night,
Melt frost from a heart,
And allow a new start.

A smile is the map,
To bridge the gap,
Between two friends,
And make amends.

A smile is a crashing wave,
Proof that you forgave,
Washing worry away,
To make all seem okay.

A smile can release a soul,
To make someone whole,
An easy way to build,
And feel fulfilled.

Let your smile grow,
Feel it's joyful flow,
Just make sure you find,
A smile that's truly kind.

So please give a smile,
You'll find it so worthwhile.
Say, "Here's one on the house,
You're a wonderful spouse."

    A sweet simple poem. I have read many poems on smiles, but this is perhaps the loveliest.

    If it brings a smile to you, I am satisfied ! Please don't think that my words are meant to make you smile. Honestly not.... I really mean it and feel this poem has come from your heart! (Report) Reply

    A lovely poem that reminds us how much better life is with a smile. Some good parallels - love the butterfly and crashing wave similes. Oh, that word looks like smile too! (Report) Reply

    Susy, perhaps I should have called the poem 'Smile Similes'! Thank you for your lovely feedback.
