A smile is cheer to you and me
The cost is nothing - it's given free
It comforts the weary - gladdens the sad
Consoles those in trouble - good or bad
To rich and poor - beggar or thief
It's free to all of any belief.
A natural gesture of young and old
Cheers on the faint - disarms the bold
Unlike most blessings for which we pray
It's one thing we keep when we give it away.
