Smiling is infectious,
You catch it like the flu.
When someone smiled at me today
I started smiling too.
I walked around the corner
And someone saw me grin.
When he smiled I realised
I had passed it on to him.
I thought about the smile
And then realised its worth.
A single smile like mine
Could travel round the earth!
So if you feel a smile begin
Don’t leave it undetected –
Start an epidemic
And get the world infected!
“Every smile makes you a day younger.”
