A Thankful Smile - Poem by Orlando Belo

My daily appearance is of a mister nice and pleasant,
I just don’t do outbursts of temperament.
Many people rely on me to smile and understand,
to listen to their problems, and to give a helping hand.

If only they knew about the pain that I have to bear,
it would fill them with a greater despair.
They may probably question why I choose everyday,
to walk a path, with problems along the way.

They also might think that I should be at home in bed,
with someone to look after me instead.
But I’m not one, who can just lie around and wait to die,
I have to help the less fortunate, well at least try.

With the time I've left I have to do something.
Something that lifts me and makes my heart sing.
Something that'll make my life seem worthwhile,
even if it is only a thankful smile.

    A thankful smile from you may seeds blooming happiness in many sides,
    we know that no one will always be in contentment
    when all about life is for us to taste
    its sweetness, bitterness
    but a heart that glow smiles to others
    may sincerely please you, when the other do the same
    because when the other smile, they care about you too
    like you do and loves is all around, buzzing like busy bees
    stay good and happy friend!
