Do You Know How To Make Me Smile? - Poem by Alison Smith

As I sit and contemplate all around me
I wonder what it would be like to smile
To have the glow of joy and happiness
Filling my very soul.

I have lived and felt many emotions but seem always to
Come back to feeling sadness and despair.
I don’t seem to be able to maintain that glow of happiness
That I have felt along the way.

I guess it has become the easy path
To allow myself to be in pain
But how can I change this
I would love to enjoy everyday.

Do you know how to make me smile?
What secret ingredient do I lack.
I am always available to help
Is anyone available for me?
