is a frown turned upside down.
is painted on the face of a clown.
brightens a dreary day.
chases tears away.
is a gift that shows you care.
is priceless no matter where.
is the key to happiness.
a sure sign of success.
When you feel lonely in a strange place.
It helps to see a smile on another's face.
If there is any real magic around.
It is the silent magic of a smile's sound.
The ivory glow of the house lights dim
then come alive again.
A signal to the audience
their journey is about to begin.
The lights go down darkness prevails.
Subdued idle conversation ceases.
The anticipative silence broken
only by a muffled unintentional cough.
