A Smile Costs Nothing

A smile costs nothing
but creates much.
It happens in a flash
and the memory
sometimes lasts forever.
It cannot be bought,
begged, borrowed or stolen.
But it is something
that is no earthly good
to anyone
until it is given away.
So, if in your hurry and rush,
you meet someone
who is too weary
to give you a smile -
leave one of yours.
For no one needs a smile
so much as
someone who has
none left to give.
