Secret Smile

Like magic it spreads across my face,
That secret smile that appears with no trace.
From somewhere deep inside my being,
It rises up like bubbles fleeing.

It’s to be shared with you, you see,
I cannot contain it inside of me.
I’ve no control, I cannot stop it,
Box it or hide it in my pocket.

Blessed am I to receive this joy,
To share with you my only ploy.
To spread this gift among the many,
Free to you, no cost, not a penny.

Silently my heart talks to you right now,
Through the grin on my face, that’s how.
It’s magic this smile, it spreads like a fire,
Stoking the joy that’s our natural desire.

Take it my friend wherever you go,
And pass the silent baton to all that you know.
