Laugh And Live - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis
Man could he laugh, you always knew when he was in a room.
No matter how large.
At a wedding over a band roaring along and pleasing the groom.
He was supercharged.
He would drop to one knee and unembarrassed fall on his tail.
Still laughing all the way.
How to make him laugh hardest? make fun of him, that never fails.
Don't hold back on what you say.
Don't dismiss him as a clown, some rosy eyed easy fellow.
No, he always knew the score.
His philosophy was to be laughing when it came time to go.
That was it nothing more.
Life at one point almost beat him but he would never let it win.
He smiled away the deepest blues.
He would face down the reaper with a pearly Cheshire grin.
He probably won him over too.
