Childish Smiles - Poem by Phil Soar

The child in me sees funny things in all we say and do
It makes me feel quite silly and I'm prone to giggling to
I never can be serious about the things I see
And very often fall about when people look at me

There are so many people that might spring into my mind
People with big noses or a very large behind
And then I burst out laughing, for no apparent cause
And roll about upon the floor, until the calm restores

I have been told so many times, that I should act my age
I'm afraid it is to late for me, I'm at a funny stage
My life is just a pile of laughs, I hope it never ends
But by the time it does, I realise I'll have no friends

So please do not be angry, when I laugh into your face
It's just a phase I'm going through, and rarely common place
I just think life is silly, and laughing's not a crime
Why don't you come and join in with this funny life of mine
