Is the sweetest ever thing
Everyone would love to see
On the face of a human being .
It's this that makes you forget
Your woes and worries for a while
Assuring you of the inherent goodness
Hidden behind rough appearances
The smile that's pure and refreshing
Like dewdrops on rose petals
Bursting into rainbow colours
At the touch of sunrays in the morning .
The smile that's cool and soothing
Like the first shower in the summer
That's welcomed by all life forms
As the merciful, heavenly saviour
The smile that's warm and comforting
Like that of a loving mother
Clasping her new-born to the bosom
With ultimate pride and care
The smile that asserts life is --
Simple and sweet for the most part
And is, therefore, worth enjoying
Despite all its painful hazards !
