Sonnet: Laughter - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

If we can laugh, our heart-aches disappear!
Our minds become freed off tensions and stress;
If we make others laugh, they lose their fear,
And become dear, starting to us caress.

Laughter is good for both the young and old;
Laughter can turn a foe into a friend;
Laughter can help forget our woes, be bold;
Laughter can bring to grief, an early end.

Laughter is life’s most precious medicine;
Laughter is soothing balm for all our ills;
Laughter is euphoric much more than wine,
Causing no harm to one/ increasing bills.
Then laugh and be merry, whenever you can,
For, that’s the way to live life better, man.

    Laughter is life’s most precious medicine;
    Laughter is soothing balm for all our ills;
    Laughter is euphoric much more than wine,
    Causing no harm to one/ increasing bills.
