Share This Smile
~*Marge Tindal*~

Take this smile
I give to you
Wear it for all to see
A gift so special
with you I share
That's how it's meant to be

This smile was given to me
a long, long time ago
I wasn't supposed to keep it
but to pass it on
and so

Rest assured that this smile
has been around for awhile
It lives to light up another face
Wear it for a while
then pass it on
to another time and place

Someday when you least expect it
it will show up again
You'll smile with easy-remembering
when you see it on the face of a friend

A smile is a special gift, and so easily given. It has the power to change a life. Sunshine and smiles to all.  

 God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown

Smile all along....  

Nice one, marge...

Regards, sudhir.

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

I always have smile while thinking of you Marge  

 It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
