the doctors have been slaving

but they have worked in vain

a thirteen year old boy has no future

a tumour gnaws at his brain

but his mother is smiling .

.

she calls his friends over

and begs '' please help me ''

help the final days of my baby

be all they can be

still she she wears that smile .

.

we play the games boys play

and our friend plays too

though he may be dying

to himself he was true

and still his mother smiled .

.

whenever he giggled

he did so with delight

then home to hug mother

as day turned to night.

still she wore that smile .

.

his days growing shorter

his time almost nigh

we'd sit by his bedside

still not knowing why

his mother wore that smile .

.

in the arms of his mother

our friend passed away

'' i love , '' i love you ''

i can still hear her say

he closed his eyes as his mother smiled .

.

he rests in forever

where only true love can be

the smile of his mother

his last memory

now i understand why she wore that smile .
