Throw A Smile

©2017 Words And Music Lisa Brockwell

(acceptance, compassion, respect, self worth)

 

Throw a smile and watch it go

It just might land on someone you know

Perhaps it’ll brighten somebody’s day

Help or heal them in some kind of way

 

Love can be shared in so many ways                  

When your smile sends love it’s A O K!                    

And when a smile shines love and it’s aimed at you              

It’s like a cozy fire that warms you right through!

 

And catch a smile when one comes to you

Your face lights up as you smile back too

It feels so good when you can’t wipe it off

A ‘beautiful smile’ doesn’t cost a lot!

 

Love can be shared in so many ways

When your smile sends love it’s A O K!

And when a smile shines love and it’s aimed at you

It’s like a cozy fire that warms you right through!
