His laughter was my saving grace,
it was timeless and contagious.
He had a loud, uninhibited laughter
and everyone who was around him
when he laughed, fell in love
with him. It was a beautiful laugh,
like the promise of tomorrow,
like a sunbeam,
and it didn’t even matter what
he was laughing about but
was all mine;
it felt like home and sounded
like a melody.
So we laugh and laugh,
and the world feels like a
kaleidoscope of new possibilities,
all of our fears and frustrations
disappearing; so happy in that moment.
