Smile

Turned on the TV and the cast of Glee started to sing this song. I’ve never heard it before. The lyrics are beautiful.

I was smiling and tearing at the same time, something I seem to do quite a bit of the past week… when I went through old photos and compiled an album on my Dad. When I receive messages of love from people in my life expressing their support to me in the face of my Dad’s passing. When I speak with my mum who repeatedly tells me not to worry about her. When I look at the one and only picture I have as a baby with my Dad.

Of course I miss my Dad. I will honour him by never stop smiling, no matter how tough life becomes. That was how he lived his life.

Lyrics of ‘Smile’ by cast of Glee

Smile though your heart is aching;
Smile even though it’s breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by.
If you smile through your pain and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow,
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
That’s the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.

That’s the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile.

Michale Jackson’s version of the song:
