For Linda Dyer,

smile smile smile
by dan zanes

every time I think of you,
smile for a while
that's the one thing you always do
smile smile smile

acting out stories and hugging your friends
smile for a while
i know what i'll do when i see you again
i'm gonna smile smile smile

like ripples in a pond
or runners who pass the baton
good feelings will go on for mile after mile
and your big heart circles the world
every time that you smile

doing those voices and telling your jokes
smile for a while
your crazy hairdos and your thriftshop coats
smile smile smile

every time you break into a broadway song
smile for a while
the whole world starts singing along
smile smile smile

well you know i love you and i'm glad you're my friend
smile for a while
you know what i'll do when i see you again
smile smile smile

(Thanks to Trish McKinney & the BPP Kubler-Ross musical series for introducing me to the song. Not sure about the video, however)
