Smile some

Turn the corners around your lips
reverse your wrinkled brow 
amuse your sullen disposition 
and disapproving frown

Etch the lines that touch your eyes
the map which tell your story
of laughter worn the crown of age
displayed near age of forty

Laugh at all the unexpected
moments that surprise
uncommon yes and comical 
till breath be gone and tears can cry

Laugh at every fortune un'd 
when it rains and makeup runs
for every fall or drink that spills 
slap a knee and laugh until

You find no shame in things gone wrong
find the funny in all you can
learn how to sing life's laughter song
for life is wasted in the sad

The start of every laughters ride
begins when your lips make a smile
not the smile of portraits pose
but the smile from fond memory rose

A smile that comes from real joy
when your eyes glisten with feeling
when joy you can't believe is real
becomes all your souls been needing

Smile deep a grin that's wide
none else so desired in life
to be by the side of one with a smile
it can make the downhearted feel alive

Be the change in your world today
the one that gives some laughter away
be the sunny and say something funny
a little joy is better than money

It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown
so go ahead and turn some grumps world around
Smile, laugh, the storms of life will never last
Bring joy to life before the living is passed
