Smile my heart, with a joy towards life that’s unbounded.
Let laughter be your prince & generosity your habit.
With the courage & patience to live it each day.
Smile my heart, when tears are heavy.
For they reveal a thirst for connection
Safely with a heart that is present for the day.
Smile my heart, at the beauty of life
The temporary nature of its setbacks
And the many surprises along the way.
Smile my heart when living life to the fullest
Always, whether surprised or disappointed
Especially when we don’t get our way.
Smile my heart, at lessons learned.
through journeys taken.
For only you carry the power of joy
Smile my heart, as you transform days into adventure
with nights full of passion.
For truly, you are my best friend.
