Smile

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”  Victor Hugo

A break from the norm for just a moment to share with you a song that for many years has always, ironically, put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart in difficult times from the very moment that I heard this song. So, I share the lyrics to this song with you and encourage you if you wish, to seek out this song too! The song’s music was composed by Charlie Chaplin. Also having been performed by Nat King Cole and others. The song is called simply “Smile”.

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it is breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by…

If you smile
With you’re fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You will find that life is still worthwhile
If you just…

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That is the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what is the use of crying
You will find that life is still worthwhile
If you just…

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it is 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 will find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile…

That is the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what is the use of crying
You will find that life is still worthwhile.
