The Works of F. Robert Kelly

SMILE

When the world is dark and lonely,
And there is nowhere to turn.
SMILE

When the love is dead or dreary,
And you feel your heart could burn.
SMILE

When the clouds have blocked the sunlight,
And you cannot see the day.
SMILE

When you see a life much better,
And think he's lucky he's that way.
SMILE

For the soon the sun will come out,
And clouds will be long gone.
SMILE

And everyone who's frowning,
Will wonder what they have done wrong.
SMILE

People will start to look at you,
And wonder why you look with glee.
SMILE

It hides away the sadness,
The pain they cannot see.
SMILE

If their lives are gloomy,
And yours is going fine.
SMILE

For people will stare suspiciously,
And wonder how you spent your time.
SMILE

And when you start to laugh out loud,
At the wonder on their face.
SMILE

And think that at one sad time,
You were in their place.

SMILE
