Your Greatest Power is in Your Smile

“Mommy, your greatest power is in your smile.”

Don’t ever choose to let it be lost

It gives you a radiant style

I’ll help you keep it, no matter the cost


For when your power is running low

You have a way to make it extra bright

Just work on a frown for show

And you’ll find power for your light


Together, we’ll find the energy

Never letting our smiles go dim

We’ll create a joyful synergy

Our smiles appearing on a whim


The first line of this poem is the greatest message I received from my daughter and, through it, I heard so much more. I’m grateful for her love every day. We only must try to frown at each other to erupt in smiles and laughter.
