“Smiling is contagious,”
Someone told me with a grin.
“It’s a very difficult thing to stop,
But far too easy to begin.”
And I found out after he walked away
That what he said was true.
Because a little while later,
I found that I was smiling too.
This small, exciting secret
Was like a rose bud, now unfurled.
Smiling is contagious,
So let’s infect the world.
