The Smile Virus

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin
When he smiled I realized
I’d passed it on to him .

I thought about that smile
then I realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don’t leave it undetected
Let’s start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!


This was a great read for me this morning. Due to an illness of a loved one, aging people whom I adore and the overwhelming fears that I have, I haven’t allowed myself to smile, to find joy or to feel.

So today, I will hold back my tears trust the Lord and smile. I hope that somebody I see, will catch the smile virus and it will come back to me, to remind me to smile and fill me with positive thoughts.

May you be touched by the smiling virus also and let the uplifting feelings fill you too.
