The Things That Make Me Smile

Sunshine on a cloudy day,
The laughter of a child,
A plan that comes together,
Are the things that make me smile.

A call long overdue from my best friend,
A kiss from my baby girl,
A nice bubble bath,
Are reasons my lips curl.

A weeklong vacation just to get away,
A cup of cocoa on a cold winter’s day,
To hear my mom say she’s proud of me,
These are enough reasons for me.
