Smiles Sometimes Hide Sad Faces

Sometimes we don't realize what we have

Until something happens taking it away

It's then we wish we had another chance

But to do that we know there's no way.

All that glitters isn't shining yellow gold

Like_ Smiles sometimes hide sad faces

Happiness is worth searching for

Like gold it may be waiting in unexpected places.

It makes no difference if you're rich or poor

Remember_ happiness cannot be bought

So be kind and open your heart's to everyone

And loneliness will never give you second thoughts.
