a smile
a good memory

a smile
the smell reminds me

a smile
something good

a smile
feeling loved

a smile
the face of a child

a smile
the face of an elderly women

a smile
on someone's face makes me grin back

a smile
just because it was there

a hug
one thousand smiles

Kindness creates a smile
smile when someone is near

It might save a life

SMILE

Michael,

Quote:

So true, isn't it? Every time I see a kid smile I hope it's a genuine smile and not just coping.

Much love,
Larry

Michael Joseph,

I am so happy. First that you met someone, and 2nd that this person makes you happy. I've been wondering where you got to.

Thanks for the poem. I especially liked the line

I think that is truer than most people realize. I have always tried to give a kind smile to others even when things have been bad for me because I know how much a smile can mean to a lonely boy.

Safe Hugs,

John

My two best friends seem to be able to make me laugh, smile, and just make me feel great.

David and Bryant are the best, but everyone here does the same, thanks you guys for making things easier to deal with.

Love MJ

While you are on this Earth don't forget to smile.

Embrace each smile and let in all the warmth it brings,

and hang on to that warmth when things are rough so you can experience the good things too.

Michael,

It's a cool poem bro, but don't forget. We are reaching out here to YOU, not to a poem. \:\)

Much love,
Larry

Larry if you guys did not reach out to me I wouldnt be able to write poems where I am happy, because the guys here help me everyday, and I know I get what I give.

Thanks to you all once again, reread poem and it reminds me of all the smiles I get here \:\)
