“When Everything Around You Feels All Upside Down”
When everything around you feels all upside down,
It’s so easy to replace your smile with a frown.
But really you shouldn’t do it, please don’t you dare,
Knowing all those around you still truly do care.
Your smile is needed to brighten our own windblown days,
It’s helpful and reassuring in so many ways.
If you don’t think you can, please do give it a good try.
Paint a smile on if you must, just ask any clown guy.
Even when things in your life seem blown sideways and tossed,
With a smile – Friends, Hope, and Love are never truly lost.
So please keep on smiling, dear one, that’s my heart’s wish for you,
For when we smile long enough, even big wishes come true.
“If you go looking for a friend, you’re going to find they’re scarce.
If you go out to be a friend, you’ll find them everywhere.” – Zig Ziglar
