Show a Smile

city-by-the-lake-leonid-afremov

When grey clouds seem to taunt you

Dreary dream echoes daunt you

Don’t let the thunder haunt you

Show a smile

When life warns a weary sadness

Don’t tumble in the madness

Whisper words of gladness

Show a smile

If gentle lips aren’t there to kiss you

And the mobile ring still miss you

Don’t let hard knocks dismiss you

Show a smile

When I’m not there to meet you

No petite hand yearns to reach you

Don’t let loneliness defeat you

Show a smile

Imagine my web of warm embrace

Dainty fingers caress your face

Weave through your delicate heart

Show a smile

When you weary head is sagging

And your dazzling spirit flagging

Although your starry eyes are lagging

Show a smile

Written by Melanie Lewis

I wanted to share this poem I wrote this for Best friend.  This was to lift his spirits when he was feeling low with life, when he was missing me.  I wanted to show him there was a way!  Life doesn’t happen to you, life is created by your decisions.  You can change your life by creating your happiness.  Don’t sit back and let life happen!  A happy life is a healthy mind set and it takes work!  But with a little bit of positive energy and love everyday our lives can be wonderful!  Happiness takes work, but it is work that is definitely worth it!
