He Laughed Again


He laughed again

So sudden

It just burst from him

And I was mesmerized

His whole face

So transformed

As if the sunshine snuck in from behind

And infused his face

With warmth and delight

So rarely does he laugh like that

When I’m there

Usually he is so serious

Focused on the task at hand

It was because of something I did

Because of something I said

Something I’ve done before

But this time he laughed instead

And then he smiled

And I smiled back



NOTE:  This is a poem that I wrote on Oct. 20, 2011, for myself.  In my notebook.  During a different and life-changing time.

So, I’ve been thinking of bringing more poetry to my blog…..and see how it goes.

Thank you for reading it.
