A smile upon my face for you

I try to hide

Behind the cloak of time

But it won’t let me

It won’t let me

Disguise the pain

Of broken wings

It forces a smile

Upon my face

A face lit up

In the aftermath

Of war

Of illness

Of trauma and despair

This world

This sublunary world

Has so much

To answer for

So much!

Yet

It forces a smile

Upon my face

For you.

For my children
