Facial Expressions.

 In a tear, a lifetime’s sadness is shown.

In a tear, all manners of images are exposed.

In a tear, life can end.

In a tear, broken hearts mend.

In a smile, friends become lovers.

In a smile, true feelings uncover.

In a smile, people fall for strangers.

In a smile, we face the greatest dangers.

In a laugh, heroes stand tall.

In a laugh, comedians hear the audience call.

In a laugh, there is unity in a nation.

In a laugh, lies love’s greatest potion.

In a kiss, lovers unite as one.

In a kiss, romanced by the setting sun.

In a kiss, children are made.

In all emotions, our souls are saved.
