Let there be more smiles

Let there be more smiles
Most of us, in not all
Have reasons to worry about
It can be as simple as
Being late to office
Not having an umbrella in the rain
Your car broke down
Wife scolding you for missing to
Greet her on her birthday
And it can be as dee as
Some being quite ill
Some one in great financial loss
Some one meeting with an accident
And a range of others
Being sorrowful is in no way
Going to help you come out of this
Believe things will change
As they are ever changing
And will change for better
Your worries big or small
Will soon vanish
No one will dare to come near you
If you bear worried looks
Brave these, as you know
They are just passing
Instead smile at these
As you will come out as a winner
While in sorrow
Even a very close friend
Will think twice before reaching you to comfort
But, the smile you sport will
Even drag unknown people to your fold
You may not know
You look more handsome or beautiful
When you smile
Become a catalyst
As your smile will make a lot others too to smile
When you smile
Sorrows go away a mile
Make yourself an agent of smile
And around you
Let there be more smiles.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
