Things that Make Me Smile


A long hug on a winter day
A stranger asking “How are you?”
A gentle tug on my hair
A bottle of sweet perfume

My favorite song on the radio
A karaoke session with friends
Dancing in my PJs
Reading about the latest trends

Things that make me smile
Things that make me beam with joy
Like finding pictures from years ago
Or finding my favorite toy

Reading old messages
Smiling with my friends
Writing about all I have seen
I think it is life that makes me happy
and I will smile until the end
