FUNERAL READINGS

We Will Laugh Again

It seems to me
That sometime
We will meet again
If only to share
Laughter

It seems to me
That once more
We must do
Funny stuff
Silly stories shared
Whispering, lisping
Absurdities

We need to giggle
At the wrong moments
Parties, wakes and funerals
People dressed up weird
Hats too big
Bells and smells
That ring out
Unexpectedly
That should be silent

We need to meet again
And laugh out loud
At total rubbish

The memories
Of our laughter
Make me cry
Yet this I know
That laughter
Good and strong
Its echo and its power
Doesn’t die away
And that is why
I know that
We will meet again
So we can share
Real laughter
