i'm sitting here, smiling
because i made my best friend feel better
and she said my words really helped
and all i want is for her to be happy
she's been through so much
and i just want to take all my happiness
and give it to her
even if it means i'm sad forever
i made her feel better
and that makes me happy

i'm sitting here, smiling
because i'm talking to the man of my dreams
the love of my life
my soulmate
my one and only
and everything in between
and we're just being ourselves
and making each other smile
and it warms my heart
and brings tears to my eyes
because i'm just so ******* happy
and i can see us old and grey
still laughing with each other
and i've never wanted anything more

i'm sitting here, smiling
because everything has fallen into place
and maybe my life isn't the best
but i've got everything i need

Dear star, dear gift in my life,
You make my world brighter,
And you are a blessing.
You make me happy,
And lord,
I hope I never lose you.
Your eyes have this shine
That I swear I've never seen
In anyone's eyes before.
I make sure to remember
That your smile has dimples,
That look more like lines
Down your cheeks,
To your chin.
I trace the lines of your chest,
And you notice me smiling.
And lord,
I hope I never lose you.

Did you ever have one of those days,
That causes more than a few eyebrows to raise?
Black clouds looming inside your head,
And fools rush in where angels fear to tread? (a.pope)

Then start by lifting up just one corner of your mouth
Point it towards the sky, DO NOT go south.
And with your index finger, push up the other flection,
Keep it right side up in the very same direction!

With this smile take a long deep and meaningful breath,
And Sing a song that warms your heart...as your mind forgives & forgets.
Stand tall young one, cause your living in the light,
This day has past but tomorrow you'll reignite!
You don't feel like smiling? Then what? Two things. First, force yourself to smile. If you are alone, force yourself to whistle or hum a tune or sing. Act as if you were already happy, and that will tend to make you happy. Here is the way the psychologist and philosopher William James put it:
"Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not.                           

- Dale Carnegie
Frigid winds pushed up against my car,
and then I saw you come inside.
Those chestnut eyes
that had been gone for so long.
My enraged thoughts
were quickly unraveled
because just a simple moment with you
was worth a thousand days.

But, the feelings didn't last very long.

The car swiftly became a space filled
with words that were never said
and words that would always be dismaying.
All I wanted was to understand
but that wasn't a part of your plan.

I wanted you to come back for more
then just an obligatory visit.

Why couldn't you come back?

For now, though, we'll drive to my house
filled with laughter and lies.

See? I'm smiling.
We're doing fine.
This was a poem I wrote a very long time ago but I could never post because I tried submitting it somewhere and it took months for them to get back to me. I was rejected but now I have the chance to post it here. I hope you enjoy it.

I want to see you live your dreams,
Achieve greatness and be happy,
And I want to be a part of your life when you do,
'Cause I keep imagining spending my life with you,
Seeing amazing places with you,
Sharing moments where we are both breathless, lost for words.
I want to see you smile, hear you laugh,
And I will always love you.

I want to be able to share memories with you, good and bad.
I want you to be able to hold me when I'm upset
And tell me things are going to be okay,
Because you always try your best to make it okay,
To make it better for me.
And you know I would do the same for you

I want to see you when I wake up, a smile would flood my face.
I want to talk to you deeply
About things, we don't have answers to.
I want to get to know you every single day,
Because I understand that people change.
You will change, but so will I.

You stole my heart days ago, and you can keep it,
Because forever I am yours

Keeping you as my secret
As though the world unknowing
Is infinitely empowering
Like the Mona Lisa smiling
Her gaze perpetrating
Knowing thoughts discerning
Never disclosing yet ever imparting
Secrets untelling
Keeping you guessing and searching
For an inevitable unveiling
Yearning unabating
baby suckles at her milky fingertips
sweet face of a new age smiling up at her
what wonders hide inside this tiny coffin?
death of the deathless,
seeds of fresh fire
sparks grow like flowers from lips
too small to speak
yet somehow she knows
child born of freedom and slavery,
you are her destiny,
you will set her free

growing to the beat of mother's heart,
swearing to yourself you never will depart
but lightning burning on a distant
battle ground
and when you look
it's nowhere to be found
light falls and you rise into the night
feeling all the stars that kiss your eyes
glowing deep within
body trembling with color and electricity,
gently it grows into a song
and you find that you can feel her
chanting inside of you again

woman walks outside to find
that everything is gone
and the world moves slowly,
all alone through the arms
of the endless, sparkling river
so she takes off all her clothes
and dances in the freedom
of a garden in the rain,
a garden of fire and singing stars
that burn so brightly that the night,
glowing like an unborn sun
in the **** of the wounded universe,
doesn't feel so dark anymore

You don’t decide who
Will make your heart race.
The corners of your lips just
Upturn so suddenly
That you only notice your smile
When you step forward and feel
The cement  pieces
Of a shattered frown
On the ground beneath your feet.
-what the first taught me

Fears melted away
This queen grins with utter joy
A new door opens
I'M IN!!!! I GOT IN!!!
*powering up like a Saiyan and happy dancing like a lunatic*
