What Makes Me Smile?
By Lynn Betsanes
Any kind of chocolate mixed with caramel and nuts,
a soft and fluffy puppy, of any breed or mutt.
After going to Confession, that feeling that you get,
The soft and quiet snow that makes your eyelashes all wet.
The colored leaves of autumn and flowers in bloom,
my husband and my children coming into the room.
The dimpled cheeks of a laughing baby boy,
a baby girl's arms reaching for me and not a toy.
There are many other things, I could go on for quite a while,
But what makes me smile most is making other people smile!
