If only I can smile like innocent child,
No disturbed feelings and emotions
To hold back
Only true happiness is what you see
On my face.
Though sometimes I forget to smile,
When I can no longer bear the pain
And it almost squeezing my heart.
But I can’t live a day without a smile
And do the laughter without disguise
That makes my day wonderful and bright.
Then I learn to smile despite the pain,
I look adorable to the eyes of others
It’s my infectious smile that makes
Other do the same way of smile.
