1. Hold You In My Smile
Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling,
that has only just been found,
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile,
So that I can savour you once more,
and hold you in my smile.
– Poem by Ernestine Northover
2. Awake To Smile
When I blink sunshine in my eyes
And hail the amber morn,
Before the rosy dew-drop dries
With sparkle on the thorn;
When boughs with robin rapture ring,
And bees hum in the may,–
Then call me young, with heart of Spring,
Though I be grey.
But when no more I know the joy
And urgence of that hour,
As like a happy-hearted boy
I leap to land aflower;
When gusto I no longer feel,
To rouse with glad hooray,–
Then call me old and let me steal
From men away.
Let me awaken with a smile
And go to garden glee,
For there is such a little while
Of living left to me;
But when star-wist I frail away,
Lord, let the hope beguile
That to Ecstatic Light I may
Awake to smile.
– Poem by Robert William Service
3. Times When I Smile
You may not even know me,
Or know what I mean,
Understand my world,
Or hear me when I scream.
You may not ever see me,
Or ever touch my mind,
Because all that is real
Are only dreams in time.
Don’t try to fit me in
To your ridged mold,
All the world is free,
At least, thats what I’m told.
So please, don’t scream and worry
Or cry for me at night.
No matter how I’m different,
I will win my fight.
I will be the victor
Of all my many trials,
Because all that’s real are dreams,
And times when I smile.
– Poem by Sandra Osborne
4. A Smile
A smile from his face made me smile,
How he makes me laugh,
A thunderstorm can’t stop me from loving him,
Even thou he and I are no longer together,
But his laughter, his smile,
Will always make me smile,
He was my first love,
My first crush,
I loved everything about him,
He will soon enough will know how I feel,
Heavens sent me above,
Above from this beyond white clouds,
He keeps something’s apart of me,
Apart that he has but his smile will always be remembered.
– Poem by Jennifer Rondeau
5. Come Smile At Me Again
Come smile at me
come smile at me again.
And use the only smile you have,
the selfless and exquisite one.
And keep your eyes on me.
I’d like to study
the nuances of your smile.
Come look at me.
Come look at me again.
And use the only look you have:
The one of pure
And keep your look on me.
I’d like to study
all the markings on your face.
Come close to me.
Come close to me again.
And hold your warm and tender body close to mine.
Come closer yet.
I’d like to study
and hope to never graduate.
– Poem by Herbert Nehrlich
6. Keep On Smiling
If at times you feel you want to cry
And life seems such a trial,
Above the clouds there’s a bright blue sky,
So make your tears a smile.
As you travel on life’s way
With its many ups and downs,
Remember it’s quite true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns.
Among the world’s expensive things,
A smile is very cheap.
And when you give a smile away,
You get one back to keep.
Happiness comes at times to all,
But sadness comes unbidden,
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.
So when friends have sadness on their face
And troubles round them piled,
The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.
– Poem by Alexandra Skiathitis
7. You Smile Upon Your Friend To-Day
You smile upon your friend to-day,
To-day his ills are over;
You hearken to the lover’s say,
And happy is the lover.
‘Tis late to hearken, late to smile,
But better late than never;
I shall have lived a little while
Before I die for ever.
– Poem by Alfred Edward Housman
8. The Smile
There is a Smile of Love
And there is a Smile of Deceit
And there is a Smile of Smiles
In which these two Smiles meet
And there is a Frown of Hate
And there is a Frown of disdain
And there is a Frown of Frowns
Which you strive to forget in vain
For it sticks in the Hearts deep Core
And it sticks in the deep Back bone
And no Smile that ever was smild
But only one Smile alone
That betwixt the Cradle & Grave
It only once Smild can be
But when it once is Smild
Theres an end to all Misery
– Poem BY WILLIAM BLAKE
9. Dusting Or Living
There are many people, in the world today,
That would rather clean, than go out and play.
They clean just in case, someone may arrive,
Not realizing those people, are out living their lives.
So much time wasted, on cleaning your house.
Wouldn’t you rather be out on the town with your spouse?
Personally I would much rather, be out and about,
Then sitting at home, cleaning with doubt.
I have a life, in need of some play.
Who cares if my house, is not spotless each day?
A house is no home, unless its been lived in.
And living comes mess, from the floor to the ceiling.
So dust if you must, but remember this saying.
Life is too short, don’t go wasting a day.
Old age will find you,
And it won’t be discussed.
When you go as we all do, you’ll make much more dust!
– Poem by Julie Hebert
Always remember a smile will not only make you feel better but your smile could also change someone else’s day.
