I am rich; I am friendly
Kind and sympathetic
My smiles are for others
To make them, happy
And pleasant
I am also independent
My tears are for me
I do not share that
To anyone
I hold and realise
The tears give me
The tears show me
The tears tell me
The tears teach me
The assurances
And the pain of others
By linking the way
Of the humanity
The path of the prophecy
The light of the Divine
Love and mercy
In a result
I become magnified
With the treasure
Of the smiles
I dedicate my smiles
To others
I do not hesitate to say
I am unique
Such ones exist
Around the globe
To shower the smiles.
