We all have some reason to smile
At times they may be far between
But whether we are alone or not
We need to let our smile be seen.
Others can be strengthened by it
Thinking our smile feels so strong
That we appear on top of the world
Not knowing that they see it wrong.
Maybe it is only our closer friends
That know by the way we may speak
That the smile we put on our face
Really hides us feeling we are weak.
Paying attention to words we share
Can help us understand what’s inside
But even as well as we think we know
We still may have emotions to hide.
