In times of stress, in times of sorrow,

Nothing can help soothe it

As much as a smile.

A smile costs nothing

Anyone can afford to share,

It can remove fear from a face

While letting others know you care.

A smile can bring someone joy

And help dry their tears,

It can lessen a burden

And help calm their fears.

So give it a try

Turn a frown into a smile,

For a smile goes a long way

And can last for a while.

During these stressful days

When our distance feels like a mile,

Stay strong, don’t give up hope

But rather just share your smile.
