    Often my thoughts travel to you
    For you make me happier than my due.
    Not many can bring out my smile
    You have a hold on me, my child
    I've seen so many things in this life
    Some were good and some were trife
    Sometimes life was just too much
    And I put away my smile for such
    But for you I will pull it back out
    And wear it like a mighty shout
    For your love and appreciation
    Has earned my sincere dedication
    And if all your require is a smile
    Then it's on display for a while
    Know this expression is for you
    For it is the least I can do
    Bottle it, pocket it, show it
    To your meomory commit it
    So when I'm gone and not around
    And your spirits are on the ground
    You can pull it out of it's hiding place
    And let the happy times fill the space
    I am knocking on heaven's door
    And soon I'll be here no more
    But when you think of me, child
    Remember the power of a smile

    Made me think of my grandmother's smile...it could be sweet, but it was also a smile that somehow managed to smile despite it all. Thank you for allowing me to reflect.
