Smile Together

You may or may not see
what I see
but you do see
and seeing is believing…
you may or may not believe
what I believe
but you do believe
and believing is loving…
you may or may not love
what I love
but you do love
and loving is living…

But, there is a big but,
living is living
it has no option,
you have to live anyway
either for yourself
or for your own people
or for the society or nation,
numerous reasons are there…

Accept yourself what you are,
just make a beginning,
be led by dreams if you have,
and if you don’t have one,
just dream what you can,
make it fulfill
to see smiles smiling at you
that may provide a reason
for someone else to smile…
smile makes one beautiful,
makes one feel loved
and makes one believe
that what we see and do
is the real living…

  1. Thank you, Kaushal, for this Ode to “Joie de vivre” written in your unmissable verses.
    Reading your words, it is impossible not to join you in the buoyant enjoyment of life, added by the apt presentation. When you smile at someone, you will receive a smile in return, and this will
    become an enriching spiritual exercise.

    1. You’re right, Joanna, smile is the beginning of a chain of smiles. That’s why it’s called infectious or contagious. Thank you for sharing your beautiful reflections.
