(Part 3 of 3)
I, mere mortal, have no more songs to sing except this, the final one, my earthly swan song.
Very soon my soul will leave this breathless body behind and soar, unburdened, toward home.
Very soon my soul will fly, finally free, into the heavens and take its rightful place in the Universe.
Very soon its past and present and future will be over and my soul will wait, patiently, for its lover.
And until she arrives I, immortal soul, will be singing the best I can.

"Smile" was written by Charlie Chaplin and is sung here by Nat King Cole. Charlie could smile in the worst of circumstances. And so can I.
And so can you.
