smile... although a tear may be ever so near...

this is personally my most fave songs of all time.  it has such a powerful message and is simply inspirational.  i first heard the song in the movie My Girl and instantly fell in love with it.  then i heard the nat king cole (or was it louis armstrong?) version if i'm not mistaken.  another powerful person singing an amazing song.  the latest version out there is from the cast of my fave tv show, glee (i'm a sucker for musicals).  although the lyrics are slightly different (i.e. 'pain' instead of 'fear'), i just love the rendition of the song.  beautiful.

though your heart is aching
even though it's breaking
when there are clouds in the sky
you'll get by
if you smile through your pain (fear) and sorrow
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
we must keep on trying
what's the use of crying
you'll see that life is still worthwhile
if you just smile...

the lyrics are incredibly simple and direct yet full of meaning and filled with emotions.  depending on my mood and emotional level at the time, this song either makes me smile or cry (or both).

so smile... although a tear may be ever so near...
