A Stranger for a while

this is not the right time
to ask me how i feel
yesterday wasn’t the moment
to ask me if it was real

moment to moment i gather
whispers i could not hear
to myself i’m still a stranger
turning laughter into tears

maybe this is me
a stranger for a while
but i’ll fill this empty heart
with lots of joy and smiles

maybe this is you
not a stranger but a friend
so look inside my heart
together we’ll find meaning at the bend

Laughter…

an emotional experience
a contagious one
funny
smileys
LOLs
deliberate
helpless
can be real or forced
suppressing makes you giggle
core of a comedy
product of jokes
a happy act
a LAUGHTER…

Your Silhouette…

tall grasses have grown on the silent sands
where I used to run after you
but you made it easy for me to catch you
so we could drop together on the sands

how your laughter drowned the boisterous waves
as it kissed the sparkling shore
then the waves have slid back quickly to the sea
and settled to the ocean floor

we had a quick funny swim
as we hurried up not to lose the sun
but as we took our last and final dip
it was long the setting sun was gone

those were the days of our youthful years
fifty beautiful summers of a happy marriage
and as I leave my sight on this beautiful place
now I’m alone reliving our great golden memories

you went ahead of me
but I felt your soul is here with me
the hands of twilight have grown its wings
your silhouette will bring me to where the angels sing
