“ Be Smart”


Reach out your hand and touch me

Reach out your heart and love me

Show me a smile and stay for a while

Stop…living in denial…smile

For one moment in joy and harmony

Evil can be destroyed honey

With every smile you give today

Another will be released within

Until the reach of a hand

And the joy of the heart

Remains part of your day

Like sunshine

A ray of warmth

Will embrace your heart

It warms it up to feel again

Let agony depart

From your young heart

Be smart…dear heart

And touch another
