LAUGHTER

I have the God-given ability to laugh
the same as I have the ability to cry.

When I am feeling unhappy
I am saved by something humorous
to liven my darkest mood.

Spontaneous laughter can lift
a sad heart
and mend a broken one.

The very sound of it
sends a message
around the world
that life is still bearable
that hope is still practical
and joy is most probable.

We know that we can't meet
all of life's problems laughing wildly
but, we are told
there is a time to laugh
and a time to cry
and sometimes the line between the two
is mighty thin!

  1. So true. I can recall both laughing until I cried and crying until I laughed!

    Thanks for my dose of Margie wisdom today ;-)

  3. Great Margie... absolutely... really no line at all... same... same... crying and laughter are both wonderful expressions of humanity... and can happen together... or apart... both are welcome...! :)

  7. I still rmmeber the days, when me and friend used to share our worries and laugh our heads off.
    LoL..it was so much fun to laugh and mock our worries.
    It calmed our sorrows a lot.

  14. Margie,
    Your poems are uplifting and happy. This one is no exception as I am struck by how funny it is that the your last stanza is true. I had never thought of it like that. Thanks for this.

    We know that we can't meet
    all of life's problems laughing wildly

    there is a time to laugh

  18. Hi Saby
    Today I had a good laugh at myself... and it felt good!
    Being able to laugh at oneself is
    a nice relief from the seriousnes of life.
    Nothing like it!

    Laughing does make us feel good...
    and when we share our laughter with others... they feel good too!
    Take care...and keep on laughing!
