Why do I smile? T'aint no mystery Wanna have a good medical history
Doctor tells me smiling is great Helps them blood cells circulate
Great for the skin Great for the ticker Smiling will get you In better shape quicker
Feels so healthy, feels so sweet Smiling just makes my face complete
It builds my strength and appetite And makes my toenails feel just right
Keeps me youthful, keeps me light Makes people wonder ‘Bout me in the night
Smiling helps me get along And keeps all my Relationships strong
Beats bein' frowny, Beats bein' lazy Why do I smile? Maybe I'm crazy!!

I started out with a different version of this poem. Then I was out working in my yard and I suddenly thought about an old poem I had on my wall as a teenager. This poem was called "Why Do I Run?" and I loved it and memorized it.
For many decades now I've loved running. The poem was written by Ed Cunningham, and I give him full credit for the initial idea and style. I've changed it up and added a lot, of course. I still love running and I still love smiling - read it to find out Why I Smile!
