As I read through so many of the poems this morning, I was overwhelmed by sadness... so many hearts breaking, so many souls aching... some griefs that seem unbearable... and my sympathy and compassion go to all.
I was reminded of this poem... in the deepest darkness, a smile often brings a tiny bit of healing... even if that healing isn't immediately apparent. And I, for one, am grateful for the smile-givers.
Thanks, Toe... for a wonderful poem. We each have the ability to make life a little less grim for someone... I needed that reminder.
