A Bucket of Smiles

I make a bucket of smiles each day, to send out and share,
I give them away for free, because, I really do care.
To give a smile to someone is to give an irreplaceable gift.
It raises up the spirit and gives the soul a lift.
I make the smiles for everyone, be they young or old,
Then when I share them out,they spread or so I am told.
A smile can travel many miles, even across the sea,
Then when I am feeling down, they then are returned home to me.

I try to walk on sunshine because it makes the brightest smiles.
Sometimes it’s a struggle as life can be sad, a trial.
If you smile when no one else is there to see your face light up.
That’s the time to realise you have a full not empty cup.
So now I have to go I will leave you with a smile,
All I ask is pass it on and watch it travel miles.
Then one day if our paths ever cross again,
Just smile at me and return the gift my friend.
