Smile, Smile, Smile - Poem by Walterrean Salley

A smile will pick you up
When you are down.
It’ll make you feel better—
Turn your day around.
So get yourself a smile,
And get rid of the frown.
Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile at the sky,
Smile at the sun.
Smile at the flowers
Just for fun.
Smile if you’re dragging
Or on the run.
Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile when you’re happy
And when you are sad.
Smile when you’re grumpy,
It’ll make you feel glad.
It could be the best day
You’ve ever had
If you Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile at the sky,
Smile at the sun.
Smile at the flowers
Just for fun.
Smile if you’re dragging
Or on the run.
Smile. Smile. Smile.
Do yourself a favor and smile


Poet's Notes about The Poem

When in pain or disappointment, by habit, many times, I find that the first thing I do is frown. But then, I quickly remind myself to smile. And I feel much better. It really works.
