A Smile

I smiled at a sorrowful stranger,
the smile seemed to make him feel better
he remembered past kindness of a friend,
and wrote him a thank-you letter.

The friend was so pleased with the letter,
that he left a large tip after lunch
The waitress surprised by the size of the tip,
bet the whole thing on a hunch.

The next day she picked up her winnings,
and gave a part to the man on the street
the man on the street was grateful,
for two days he'd had nothing to eat.

After he finished his dinner,
he left for his small dingy room
He didn't know at that moment,
that he might be facing his doom.

On the way he picked up a shivering puppy,
and took him home to get warm
The puppy was very grateful,
to be in out of the storm.

That night the house caught on fire,
the puppy barked the alarm
He barked till he woke the whole household,
and saved everybody from harm.

One of the boys that he rescued
grew up to be the President,
All this because of a simple smile
that hadn't cost a cent!!!!!!!
