I Owe You A Smile

I owe you a smile If on today you see me down Just know that I’m not myself right now I’m just not having a good day So please don’t get in my way If I turn around and snap at you It’s probably because I’ve already warned you Today I’m not feeling like myself So please go bother someone else I’m sorry if you don’t like my attitude I’m really trying hard not to be rude But the wrinkle in my forehead should be a sign That today is not your day and neither mine So let me cool down and you try again in a little while And remember this… “I owe you a smile.” “The Simple Words”

I like it. We all go through this type of day, but it's how we deal with it that defines us...in my opinion
