SMILE

She sits in the room full with her friends.

They all laugh and talk.

But why cant she seem to smile?

She tries but their all fakes.

She had plenty of reasons to be happy.

She had her friends.

They all loved her.

But why wasn't she happy?

She sat in the corner as they had fun.

She didn't know why.

Or was it she didn't want to?

Its then she see's what she has wanted to most.

Why did it wait so long?

She went down the stairs to find her mom smiling after all this time.

Thats what she has wanted.

To see her mom happy.

Not in pain.

Now she had a reason to smile.

She could be happy when her mother was.

Now she could laugh.
