Survivor's Smile

Through a smile a life can be told
Frowns of stress make us grow old
It's not old age that we fear
But fear of unknowns that make life dear
As a gemstone sparkles in the lights
Our smile shows we've survived life's plights
We can lose all we've come to know
And still smile as we go with the flow
The survivor's smile will never fade
Until the last rites of death are made
Even then-our souls will smile in Heaven
Knowing life-with its pain-can't hurt us again.
