Song by our Founder & Program Director, Bayley P.,
* Dedicated to families who have a child with a life-threatening or chronic illness.
1. Smiles are hard to come by, today.
Today, only tears fall down my face.
Life is too difficult to go on.
Yet, I just want to smile again.
I just want to be happy again.
I want to forget for a moment all my fears.
I want to leave all my guilt behind.
Oh… When will I smile again?
2. The tears keep on falling.
I just want my child to be okay.
The alarms keep on beeping.
Please, don’t take my child away.
All I want is my child to stay.
And not be in pain.
I want my child to have a normal life someday.
3. Everything is going to be alright.
My child is here to fight.
My child is here to spread joy and love.
I will never give up.
For my child is my light tonight.
And my child will pull through.
My tears are washed away.
As my child is here to stay.
I will smile when I look up at the sky.
I will smile when I see my child’s beautiful eyes.
I will smile when I see God’s face.
I will smile no matter what.
Because my child can.
My child is strong.
My child is brave.
My child is a fighter.
My child is a hero.
And I will smile for them.
Oh… I will smile again.
