A Penny to Shine
We place a random price on almost
  everything we encounter in life.

Everyone's price is not the same. 

But when I see a penny on the street.  
I pick it up and call it a penny from 

To me a strategic placed penny was left by 

    an angel to remind me to value anyone who    

took the time to place a smile in my heart.   


I am a multi billionaire today.

 A smile left is valuable to 

anyone, especially one

who is sad today.  


 But a prayer for a dear 

friend is priceless!!!!.


Author's Notes:
Sometimes I really don't have the words to express what I feel.
But inside a light will shine always for you and it's the real deal.

Thank you, Dan. We don't really assign much value to the penny anymore, but I'll call up the smile you gave me today every time I see one in the future. ML

Yes, a smile is always appreciated. Not many will pick up a penney from the street. I'll remember your poem when I find one.
