Smile is Contagious

Smile Is Contagious

let's love one another brother stop all the hate going around
be proud of who you are on the inside & choose
to become a beacon of light to a hurting world in need of love
love is the mere essence of the fabric of my existence
don't ever try to join up in its resistance
we can move mountains of evil in our way
those that never confide to bow the knee to pray
but is there another way ?
faceless victims with viscous fangs that bite dripping blood off side
yet I seek for comfort in a higher power
my very soul permeates with a reason to share such love
from a candle light vigil to passing the torch
we are living in a land so very mean
Smile is contagious so pass yours on
sing a lively tune or a love song
the vibrance of lost exploits from a time ago
having so much fun with a tender hope that it would last
the get togethers at the beach
trying to catch that frisbee way out of reach
walking hand in hand along the shore
never felt like this before for you were all I was searching for
kicking the tin can in the street
the ice cream man came by with a heavenly treat
back the it used to mean something to hold open your door for your neighbor
wearing your finest at the mall with the gell in your hair
for i shed a single tear cause you were never there
to bask in the vast expanse of rich tender love
coupled with a heart filled with gold
mark the one willing to explore
so much more with a smile
cause you knew all the great while
it was there all the time what I had been searching for
so today tell somebody there special never forget them
there is always a great lesson the more you keep on confessing
like a rainbow in the dark you lit the inner spark to what is is I'm searching for
when your smiling the whole world smiles with you
when your dancing truly dancing the sun keeps shining through
but when your laughing truly laughing the rain won't fall on you
learn to share with one another the treasure of love
