Smile

It’s time to get out of bed,

drag yourself out even if 

you feel you can’t.

Get dressed and go for a walk.

Smile at all, even if

they look confused.

Then it happens.

First one, then two, and then

every “hello” will be returned.

Every stranger will smile back,

for we are sucker for love, attention, 

and surprise gifts of acceptance.

Now catch those smiles,

carry their joy.

The warmth of a smiling hello…

That is the true meaning

of finding your own happiness.

Let these smiles become

your valentine!
