What We Call Smile:
There's something you may give
A friend and stranger too;
It seems that when you give it,
It's given back to you.
This gift is worth a million,
But doesn't cost a dime;
It's lasting in effect,
But doesn't take much time.
This simple little gesture
Can make the day worthwhile
It's just as good as sunshine --
It's what we call a smile !
