But Laugh

Sometimes you can’t help but laugh —
In the times filled up with feeling,
Sometimes you can’t help but stop,
All of humor’s senses reeling

It’s the way we are for sure:
Part of what we’re made up of —
Sometimes you can’t help but laugh,
Moments you can’t help

But love

Laughing in the Moment

One of those moments.

Laughing in the moment she
Pulled her glasses down at me;

Barely speaking able, then,
Laughter breaking out again.

Love and laughter; laughter, love
Ringing out, across, above –

Laughing moments fill the air:
Oh, enjoy them, while
They’re there

The Funny Thing About Love Is…

Fun

Real lovers
Respect each other
But
Real lovers also
Can laugh about their failings
With each other

Because
The respect comes first
And remains at last
The laughter of lovers
Can bring cleansing

It is a fine line
Laughing at each other
But love
And only love
Can turn laughter
Into joy
