Smiles Can Hide a Million Tears

Smiles say more than a thousand words,
By some folk it is said,
But some hide the falling of a million tears
That unseen have been shed.
So next time you see a worry free smile,
Though you worrying may not be smiling inside…
Remember you may be the happier,
Having not the worries the smiler sadly does hide…

Just one of way too many…
