Smile

Smile

Its such a simple word, yet it holds the world inside, it has been a long time since I last thought about what smiling meant to me and therefor to others. I’m always smiling, sometimes I smile with my lips, sometimes with my eyes, sometimes with both.

Do I always have a reason to smile? Well… not always, but I can’t bear the thought of people thinking I’m sad, so I smile…

Ever since I was little people would look at me and smile, so I have always felt the need to do the same, I know its not a valid reason, but its my reason, so I don’t really care.

When I was in my twenties I found a music in a film by Charlie Chaplin whom I was studying at the time, the music was in the film Modern Times, it was the end theme, it had no lyrics and it made me smile,  … little did I know that the song was actually named Smile, and its lyrics were like a mirror to my feelings, to this day when someone asks me what’s my favorite song I answer Smile…and most people ask me who’s the song by???

So here it is, that song it’s what Smiling means to me, its the most close definition of me that I’ve come across in this life, I believe its the same to a lot of people, even if they don’t know it.

This is my introduction…

Smile

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky
you’ll get by.

If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through
For you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near

That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying.
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile-
If you just smile.

That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying.
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile-
If you just smile.
