A smile, a wave

A smile, 

A wave,


Mama always said be brave,

But Mama's gone away,

Sleeping forever now,

And my worlds gone astray. 

I mask the pain with a bow, 

A courtsey little known, 

I take the masquerade, 

My pain is rarely shown,

Through the clever charade.

A smile,

A Wave,

Mama's soldier pretends to be brave.
