If at times 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 a friend has sadness on his face
With troubles ’round him piled,
The world will seem a better place,
All because you smiled.
