What's the cost of one small smile
To chase away some clouds?
And how much is it worth to you,
To make the sun come out?
You never know what harsh cold winds
Blow accross your neighbor's sky,
Or the loneliness that drowns him, 'till
You look into his eyes.
And if you want to understand,
How much your smile's worth,
Just look at all the life that blooms
When sun warms the cold brown earth.
And so much beauty, life and joy,
Like flowers, beneath the snow,
Unfurls itself and stretches forth
With strength and faith and hope.
Likewise, one tiny smile says
"Hey! I'm glad you're here.
I might not know you all that well,
Even so, I truly care."
One tiny smile's like a flame;
It doesn't take much light,
To dissipate a world of darkness,
When you're all alone at night.
And your sweet smile lights the world,
Yes, you alone can start,
A tidal wave of hope and faith
When you smile from the heart.
And the best part about smiling is
It doesn't cost a dime,
But enriches you, tenfold and more
Each and every time.
So don't be stingy, don't hold back,
Share a smile each chance that you get,
You may not know the life you've saved,
Or the heart that you've touched and you've blessed.
But one thing's for sure, you can hold me to this:
But the one who is surely,
The first to be blessed
With the sunshine that comes from your smile,
Is yourself, my dear friend;
what you give's what you get,
So, give it all, without any regret!
(Your smile's the absolute BEST!)
