Give a Smile, it’s Free

Can’t remember where I stumbled upon this little poem across this little poem but it is definitely worth reading.


It costs nothing but creates much.
It enriches those who receive without impoverishing those who give
It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever
None are so rich they can get along without it and none so poor
But are richer for it’s benefits
It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in the business
And is the countersign of friends
It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged
Sunshine to the sad and nature’s antidote for trouble
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen
For it is something that is of no earthly good to anybody, until it is given away
Nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give
