Nerves of Steel.. a Steely Resolve..?..

Saturday Centus Week 149~

My Mozelle... 

My grandma always told me
Child.. you should always wear your smile...
Yes.. even on the saddest days
when it hardly feels worthwhile.. 
For a smile can light the darkest day
and help to heal a broken heart..
If no words will come to mind 
a smile's a likely start..
I miss her most this time of year
when the butter cups find bloom..
for it was on a dreary winters day
that her death filled us with gloom...
I try to show a smiling face 
to most everyone I see 
and be the kind of friend to them
that my Grandma was to me...

Oh I loved your poem about your grandma! I never knew either of my grandmas...and always wished I had...but they died before I was born.
