Never Stop Smiling

When all else fails,

I Smile.

When others judge and throw words like rusty nails,

I Smile.

When life laughs and crashes down without warning,

I Smile.

When darkness is followed by the dreaded morning,

I Smile.

When people walk without a simple hello or goodbye,

I Smile.

When things go wrong because of a little white lie,

I Smile.

When saddness threatens to claim my crumpled heart,

I Smile. 

When the Clock of Time attempts to rip my happiness apart,

I Smile.

When others look into my eyes with an expression of sorrow,

I Smile.

When a grin is returned from those saddened eyes,

I Smile Wider Than Before.
