Sense Of Humour. - Poem by Lizzy Tomlinson

My writings are a mixture,
Of humorous and sad.
I like to see the funny side,
Of a life that's most, been bad.
Not a lot of happiness,
I've seen throughout my life.
The best years that I ever spent,
Were being my husband's wife.
Seventeen years of forty~eight,
That leaves thirty~one.
Years of being miserable,
And feeling on my own.
So I'm glad my sense of humour,
Is right here in my head.
'Cause if I didn't have it,
I might as well be dead.

My profile states I'm 49. Not until October.
