Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain,
Laughter and pleasure, teardrops and rain.
All days can’t be bright but it’s certainly true,
There was never a cloud the sun didn’t shine through.
And you’ll find when you smile your day will be brighter
And all your burdens will seem so much lighter.
For each time you smile you will find it’s true
Somebody, somewhere, will smile back at you.
And nothing on earth can make life more worthwhile
Than the sunshine and warmth of a beautiful smile!
