A head rose from the shadows
and a million thoughts followed
Questions surround him
as a grim smile crossed his lips.
As the past crashed into memories
the moments set him apart.
As the past came back to life
the pain jostled through the soul.
A grim smile appeared once again
world did not need another man in grief
all it required was a smile.
To comfort. To help. To feel joy again.
One cannot smile forever.
