My Favorite Word

by Becky Kern-Taylor

I"m searching for my favorite word..It's going to take some time.
It has to be a happy word..with Reason and with rhyme.
I also want the word I choose..to Be a word of giving.
A word that everyone enjoys..that Makes our life worth living.
Now I could choose like love or kiss..but That is not my style.
But wait I think I've got it..my favorite word is smile.
A smile is a gift that you can share..with everyone you see.
It usually brings them joy..and helps to lift them spiritually.
Smile at the teller at the bank..or share with the grocery clerk.
Of course you know to share your smiles..with everyone at work.
Smile at your local mailman..or at your grocery checker.
And even the guy at Wendy's..that serves the double-decker.
You know that you can always smile..at anyone on your street.
And when you get a smile back..the message is complete.
Someday try to count your smiles..I hope that there are many.
Remember it's a gift you give..that doesn't cost a penny.




One Word Only contest entry


Our local newspaper used to carry a column by some gentleman, I've forgotten his name, that I found very enlightening. He was very big on distributing smiles and compliments, and neither cost a penny. Made sense to me then, makes sense to me now.
