A sweet smile comforts the weary, gladdens the sad
Consoles those in trouble, good or bad
To rich or poor, beggars or thieves
It’s free to all of any beliefs.
A natural gesture of young and old
Cheers the weak, disarms the bold
Unlike most blessings for which we pray
It’s one thing we keep when we give it away.
It costs nothing, but creates much
There is no sweet thing as such
Always enriches those who receive
Without impoverishing those who give.
It is a cheer to the weary, daylight to the discouraged
Sunshine to the sad; nature’s best antidote for the raged
An abstraction which you regularly need
So let your hesitation fly away and smile for it is free.
