The Smile That Broke The Bubble - Poem by Gladys Moore

When we are young, life is full of fun.
We laugh and giggle, sing, play and run. As we grow older, we don’t run-we walk
and instead of laughing, we talk and talk. Sometimes as out lives change from bright to dark,
we long for the laughter and the sound of a lark. They are still there if we stop to listen,
our memories will cause the stars to glisten. As we see the shining light, we start to smile,
then we feel as if we could again run a mile. When someone else looks on our smiling face,
it can create in them a complete change of pace. One smile can become like something magic,
it might even prevent something tragic. So turn the look on your face upside down
and you’ll have a smile instead of a frown. You may help someone forget they have trouble,
because your smile blew it away like a bubble.
