A Smile To Open A Hurting Heart

I used to meet him around the corner, 
walking alone, deep in his thoughts,
I have never seen him smile.
His feature frown leaves many wondering,
setting permanent, a crease between his brows.

... is life knocking hard on him? 

Many poor children born with defective hearts,
had theirs repaired complimentarily
by this one without a smile;
a saviour hand lent by God.

'...but who will heal my child of his ailing mind?'

Yet he is entrusted 
to care for many other sheep because 
he is the chosen one, capable of doing so.

Lina, Anna and Rosnah sat waiting 
for their child at the mental rehabilitation centre.
These single mothers, too, have forsaken their smiles,

...for 'who will mend our broken hearts?'

Everyone has a battle.
A smile is free. Give a smile, to ignite another smile; for the one who has forgotten to smile.
*** “A simple smile. That’s the start of opening your heart and being compassionate to others.”
Dalai Lama An honest smile is an icebreaker. - Toba Beta

Senyuman Untuk Membuka Hati yang Sakit Saya biasa menemuinya, berjalan sendiri, jauh di fikirannya, Saya tidak pernah melihatnya tersenyum. Ciri-cirinya yang cemberut membuat ramai tertanya-tanya, menetapkan kekal, lipatan di antara keningnya. … Adakah kehidupan mengetuknya? Banyak anak miskin dilahirkan dengan hati yang cacat, telah diperbaiki dengan baik oleh orang ini tanpa senyuman; tangan penyelamat yang dipinjamkan oleh Tuhan. '… tapi siapa yang akan menyembuhkan anak saya dari mindanya yang sakit?' Namun dia diberi kepercayaan menjaga banyak 'biri-biri' lain kerana dia adalah yang terpilih, dan mampu melakukannya. Lina, Anna dan Rosnah duduk menunggu untuk anak mereka di pusat pemulihan mental. Ibu-ibu tunggal ini juga telah meninggalkan senyuman mereka, …'siapa yang akan memperbaiki hati kita yang hancur?' Setiap orang mempunyai masalah kendiri. Senyuman adalah percuma. Berilah senyuman, untuk menyalakan senyuman lain; bagi yang terlupa tersenyum. “A simple smile. That’s the start of opening your heart and being compassionate to others.”Dalai Lama An honest smile is an icebreaker. - Toba Beta 打开心灵的微笑 我曾经在拐角处见他, 独自行走,深深地思考着, 我从未见过他微笑。 他的特征皱眉让很多人感到疑惑, 设置永久的眉毛之间的折痕。 ……生活在逼着他吗? 许多可怜的孩子天生有缺陷的心脏, 对其进行了免费维修 带着这个微笑着 上帝借给救主的手。 “ …但是谁能医治我孩子的精神病呢?” 然而他受托了 照顾其他许多绵羊,因为 他是被选中的人,有能力做到这一点。 丽娜,安娜和罗斯纳坐在等待中 为他们在精神康复中心的孩子。 这些单身母亲也放弃了微笑, …对于“谁将修补我们破碎的心?” 每个人都有一场战斗。 微笑是免费的。 微笑,点燃另一个微笑; 对于那些忘记微笑的人。
