The sun is out, the skies are blue. I’m full of smiles, but why aren’t you. I cannot look inside your mind, to understand for you I’m blind.
I choose to see the things I see, if it doesn’t shine, no interest, me! But as we walk around this plane, we cannot see the inner pain.
So smile I do and miss the frowns, I will not let life get me down, but as I gaze upon your face, I know this aint the usual case.
I once thought that I knew my path, I once lived my life to laugh, to lark around and take the piss, not everyone can live like this.
Through trauma hides my jaded frown, this life, this world keeps spinning round, I’m not the centre of the earth, by grace of god I know my worth.
So sun shines on and clouds abate, through tears of joy you make me wait, to look upon your smile again, through years of living with this pain.
You gave me life you gave me breath, you left me with sweet kiss of death, my Mam you’ll never fade from me, take care of dad, and wait for me!
