Play it on your lips

Wear a smile on your face,  
Wear a smile all day,  
For nothing you wear looks lovely without it
Smile away the day,
and watch the effect  
you pass around
It might just cheer up the not  
so gay
and happiness may well  
abound.
And don't you look your best  
when you do smile
No wonder you're asked to say  
'cheese' for a photo
but the trick is to wear it all  
the while
'To smile without distinction'  
be thy motto.:)
When someone creases their  
forehead into a frown
You curve your lips upward  
into a smile
Don't let their scowl get you  
down
They'd be the one to look the  
clown
while you show off your  
inspiring style.
If people stare 'n' glare at you
Return their glares and stares  
with a grinning smile
Keep smiling whether they boo  
or pooh pooh
They might just reset their  
mental file.
Thus forever flash your  
pearlywhites
They aren't meant merely for  
chow and bites.
Flash em' into a smile that  
lights
A crescent shaped smiley on  
the face
explore your own facial  
expression delights.:)
A smile is a sign of happiness right under your nose
Smile warmly like the sunshine, like the crescent moon
Even when the icy cold wind of discourtesy blows
