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

The Funny Thing About Love Is…


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

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
