Smile for Them

Smile for them, he said. Make them think everything is okay even though the world is ending.

Smile for them, he said. Let them know you truly love them.

Smile for them, he said. Mask the pain that eats at your throat and clings to your heart.

Smile for them, he said. As we waste away.
