Smile Again

This poem is dedicated to all grandparents in the world, especially to my grandparents Soledad and Pacencia. I love you, Nanay Soling and Mama Loyan!
Smile to break the silence,
Smile to make a big difference,
Smile to change my world, your world,
And the whole wide world.

Smile to bring out the fears,
Smile to stop the tears,
Smile to hide the pain,
Smile again and again.

Smile to impress,
Smile to relieve stress,
Smile to each other,
Smile to feel better.

Smile to show your brilliant smile,
Smile to spread your infectious smile,
Smile to all people around you,
Smile so that others will smile, too.

Smile to your problems,
Smile to your low incomes,
Smile to build self-confidence,
Smile to feel God's presence.
