A smile is contagious. Smiling is infectious

Smiling is infectious,
You catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner
And someone saw my grin
When he smiled I realised
I’d passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
Could travel round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin,
Do not leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic quick,
And get the world infected!
