She Laughs and my Soul Sings

She laughs and it makes my soul sings.

The sound, forgotten and lost in her darkness,

has finally found its way back.

I  welcome it gratefully with open arms.

I close my eyes and suddenly, it’s the only sound I hear.

I record the sound in my memory.

I don’t want this music to end,-

this joyous moment to cease. 

Her laughter lights the world around us,

Leaving years of darkness behind in a single refrain.

She catches my smile with her cheerful eyes,

but she misses my held back tears.

Freedom from her mind chimes with a new day.

The sound continues to play in my mind,

and fills my heart and mouth with praise.
