Keep On Smiling

Keep on smiling and dreaming,

to get through the days.

There are many rocky paths,

along the way

and no loving hand reaching out for you.

This life hasn’t promised you,

a garden full of roses,

but even though the road is rough,

if you keep on smiling –

you’ll keep the tears at bay.

Though misty eyed you go forward,

the sun will shine brighter,

for sorrows even when they bring grief,

melt away into brighter tomorrows.

Never say you can’t go on,

life doesn’t cradle

and it doesn’t favor,

but if you keep your smile,

like an umbrella,

against the wind and rain,

it will protect you

and you’ll reach the mountaintop.

Look in the mirror,

at the reflection you see,

don’t let there be a frown,

just turn it upside down.

When looking at photos,

of treasured memories,

even though your eyes get misty –

smile and relive the happy times.

Keep on smiling

and make life a spree,

take each day,

always adding some glee.

Let your soul feel released and free,

never stop dreaming,

keep on believing,

your smiles will bring out the rainbows

and the clouds will sail away.

Then the sun will shine brightly upon you

and your wonderful smile.
