It’s difficult at times

to face grief with a smile.

It’s hard to make myself believe

It will pass in a while.

And when the pain is sharpest

Words are to no avail.

When tears fall hot and heavy

The best intentions fail.


And yet however heavy

The burdens that I bear

When no one else will listen

My girls will always hear

When no one else has spare time

They will lend a hand.

Although some forget me,

My daughters understand.
