My Smile
They go to bed hungry
Cant sleep through the night 
This family struggles
Fight after fight
Its hard to pull through 
But Im sure in the end 
All the struggles they faced
Will all dissapear....

Fadeing memories of happy years passed
The times they were happy
Went by so fast 
All the dreams that they had 
Faded in tears 
Thoughts of tomorrow 
Covered in fears....

When will this end 
The pain that they know
Will happy times come 
As painful times go
Will the dreams that they had 
Flourish their minds 
As the pain that they knew 
Fades with the time....

This pain that I feel 
When I look in their eyes
I know its so real 
I start to cry 

Its times like these 
That you realize 
Every set back 
Brings you further in life....

So when its all over 
Look at my face 
Tell me dear friend 
Is it what you expect 
All the pain has since flourished 
Passed with the time 
And the scars on my face 
Are those from my smile....

Think not about the time we have left but about the time we Have wasted.
