Where’s That Smile

Eileen Clark

Where’s that smile of yours today

What do you mean you put it away

Do you want to bring everyone down

We don’t feel good seeing you frown


Do you at least have it close by

Before you make all of us cry

Perhaps you have it in your pocket 

Or do we need a key to unlock it


I can see that your feeling very bad

Otherwise you wouldn’t look so sad

Is it something that you can talk about

It might be a help to just let it all out


If you give us a smile or just a slight grin

You can then release all your endorphins

Forcing that smile can bring you a boost 

Then some of your stress could be reduced

    Good write Eileen.
    I know what the problem is - I started to sing. That never raises a smile! lol.

    very good poem, Eileen
    have you ever considered painting or drawing pictures ? it's really not as difficult as you might think
    You can do do some quite pretty pictures with just pastels
    I've been doing this for about two years at the nursing home where I am a resident
    I would be glad to show, help you get started
    pastels are not that expensive and be bought online and shipped to your door
    when I do a picture, it relaxes me and makes me feel good, like a smile
    I have done and given away at the home here about 150 pictures
