The mother cares so much about her son that she does not want him to see her getting upset in his final days. “She held a ghost smile between her teeth, and in her eyes memories.” When it says ghost smile it shows that she does not want to show her child that she is upset about the situation of his death, because as you know children do not like it when they see their mother upset. Also when it says the memories in her eyes it refers to the flashbacks of the good times they had together presumably before they got put in the refugee camp. This is therefore another reason for her to be hiding her
