Smile All The While - Poem by Arti Chopra

send out a smile today,
see it being returned
lighten someones burden
your love wont be spurned

its difficult to smile
when the days cares lie heavy
but the result is really worth it
youll soon be smile savvy

everyone is harried
while rushing about by day
a cheery wave, a happy smile
has so much to say

for the shy ones, takes courage
to smile at someone unknown
but try it and you will see,
how cheerily its condoned.

a smile makes you feel happy,
give you a warm glow inside,
makes the day seem lighter
and worries to subside.

so lighten up all you serious ones,
and smile away your cares,
you give one., you'll get one free,
even ward off someones tears.

resolve to be happy,
spread cheer to near and dears,
work harder, sincerely and happily,
smile are contagious, not tears.
