Original Song – “Smile For Me”

Smile For Me is a little song about smiles and tears, laughter and sadness, happiness and joy.  It’s about choosing to be happy and seeing the sunshine in our lives, wiping the tears away and smiling a little smile today.  Happiness is a choice – always has been and always will be – but sometimes it’s hard to see the sunshine streaming into our lives when our eyes are full of tears.  It often takes someone to help us wipe our tears away and remind us that it’s a sunny day outside!  Only then can we, “Smile a little smile, Smile a little smile for me, Baby wipe your tears away, Baby smile a smile today, Look around it’s a sunny day today!”

I recorded my original song “Smile For Me” as a demo on Set 14 in 1997, and it completes the set. The song speaks to the emotions of happiness and sadness, “Sometimes we laugh when we cry, Sometimes we cry when we laugh, Do you wonder why…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
