A Smile Is Worth

Have you ever thought about what a smile is worth? Some say that your smile is worth a million dollars, others say that you cannot put a price tag on a smile.

The poem was written many years ago by Rolf Thelan but it still has application today. And it is one that is great to share with others to remind them smiles make life worthwhile!

It's Worth A Million Dollars

Poet: Rolf Thelan

The thing that goes the farthest toward making life worth while,
That costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile;
The smile that bubbles from a heart that loves it fellow-men,
Will drive away the clouds of gloom and coax the sun again.

It's full of worth and goodness, too, with manly kindness blent;
It's worth a million dollars, and it doesn't cost a cent.
There is no room for sadness when we see a cheery smile,
It always has the same good look; it's never out of style.

It nerves us on to try again when failure makes us blue;
The dimples of encouragement are good for me and you.
It pays a higher interest, because it's merely lent;
It's worth a million dollars, and it doesn't cost a cent.

A smile comes very easy; you can wrinkle up with cheer
A hundred times before you can squeeze out a gloomy tear;
Its ripplings, moreover, to the true heart strings that tug
Will always leave an echo that is very like a hug.

So, smile away, folks understand what by a smile is meant;
It's worth a million dollars, and it doesn't cost a cent.
