... short poem about smiling

by Norma Staples

It is easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows by like a song.

But the person worthwhile
Is the one who will smile,
When everything goes dead wrong.

For the test of the heart is trouble,
And it always comes with the years,

And the smile that is worth
All the praises on earth,
Is the smile that shines
Through the tears.
