Today’s Blog post a a beautiful song which has been submitted by Phil Muriel.
Because I smile (Words and Music Phil Muriel)”Dedicated to those who smile through the pain — inspired by those who live in fear of being returned to the hell they fled”. I interpret for counsellors who help torture survivors who have sought sanctuary in the UK. In spite of the trauma they carry with them, they remain dignified and manage to smile. So do cancer sufferers, the elderly and many others who “suffer in silence” — this song is for them all.
This is the first song I recorded for my EP, ‘Postcards from the Heart’. So many people hide what they truly feel behind a smile: pain, fear, depression, stress etc. This song is dedicated to all who suffer and yet “smile through the pain”
