I Will Smile

I will smile

Because it could make someone else smile
Because it destroys the pain
Because I want to be remembered for it
Because I want to make the most of every moment
Because it makes living worth while
Because it erases the stains
Because it keeps my kryptonite away
Because it gets me through the day
Because someday I may need a smile
Because today, itā€™s the only reason Iā€™m holding on

I donā€™t smile because itā€™s easy
I smile because itā€™s too easy not to
I donā€™t smile for me
I smile for you
I donā€™t let you see the tears
I let you see the smile
I donā€™t want you to see my fears
I want you to see my strengths
I donā€™t smile because itā€™s easy
I smile because there are too many reasons not to
