The Gift Of A Smile

I gave the gift of a smile today
When I really wanted to cry
Taking the effort to withhold my tears

Worry had filled my morning
My hands wringing in distress
I just wanted the day to end

But something inside me said smile
I took a breath and did just that
Not knowing the gift I would receive

The smile I gave took away the frown
Displayed on a young man’s face
His whole demeanor suddenly changed

His smile in return broke worry’s hold
That had been binding my heart all day
I felt my burden become lighter

Deciding to give such a small gift
I never gave a moment’s thought
I would be given a much bigger one in return
