Force a Smile

Flowers in the attic dead roses on the bed... 
A look of depression cause of something I said... 

A grab on the elbow, then a frown with distress 
Was it something I did, I tried my best... 

Not a word at dinner, not even a sentence... 
I talked about my day and she didn't even listen... 

I thought to myself was it something I missed... 
Laying in bed not even a kiss... 

I forgot she's not here, she's been dead for a while... 
So I look at her pictures...and force a smile:)
