TEN MILLION SMILES 

 

If I won the lottery I’d buy ten million smiles

And hand them out to people on the street,

People who looked sad , as though they’d trudged a thousand miles,

And those who always look down at their feet.

 

Post them out to families who lost a special friend

And maybe think they’ll never smile again,

Take them to the hospitals, to lives about to end,

Who can’t recall the good times way back when.

 

Have them sent to Mothers, who feel life has let them down,

With children round their feet both night and day,

Husbands who come home from work with nightly worried frown

To bills that add to more than weekly pay.

 

Text them to armed forces men, in far-off foreign lands,

And give them to their families as well,

Make them smile to know that we’re defended by safe hands

By unsung heroes ringing freedom’s bell.

 

Vagabonds, bag ladies, even girls of ill repute,

All could use a smile to help them through,

I would save the biggest smile of all, with no dispute,

And wear it on my face when I see you.
