Smiles – for everyone

“When people live in a concrete jungle they often drop their smile somewhere” my photographer friend, Wantong, in Kuala Lumpur said.  My response was “Please give it back to them in the form of a poem…”.

So here’s my poem called ‘Smiles – for everyone’ and I encourage anyone and everyone to copy it and send it to everyone else, whether they’ve dropped their smile already, or not!

Or send them Yaniq’s newly recorded song of, ‘Smile’:

Hmmm, I wonder how far around the world we could get with this idea –
Smiles for everyone, worldwide! – YEAH!

Smiles – for everyone

A lovely bunch of smiles

The window pane
looks on
without judgement

The mirror cares not
if you’ve just got
out of bed

If you see
your reflection
in the surface of the water

As long as you are
you will not be misled

A smile is simple
so easy
and free

Why not
give it away

The young
and old
will all agree

Your smile
is welcome

Getting interest
at the bank
costs you money

Returns you get
from smiles
are instant and free

The rewards
are even greater
because smiles are healthy too

I will give you
a present
here’s a smile from me to you 🙂

Yaniq has recently turned the poem into lyrics for his new song, ‘Smile’ 🙂 which you can see here:
