A friendly smile costs nothing
But gives so very much
Itís as welcome as early flowers
Or a gentle loving touch.
It enriches those who receive
Taking nothing from those who give
That smile is always remembered
For as long as weíre destined to live.
None are so rich and so mighty
That a smile wonít brighten their day
And none are so poor and deprived
They canít afford to give one away.
A smile is a moment of
In the home or to those we meet
Itís a countersign of our friendship
As we stroll along the street.
Itís cheer to those
It is sunshine to those feeling lost
The best thing to be said about it
Is the fact that it has no cost.
It is something that canít be
Borrowed or stolen this day
For itís something that has no value
Until it is given away.
