In response to today’s Daily Prompt: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/roaring-laughter/
The last time I laughed
I very nearly turned blue
For I laughed and laughed
When they said that I loved you.
They cried, “You’re in love”
And I nearly cried, too
Then and yet again
For my purple bird that flew.
I refuse let myself be troubled
By memories of you, dear bird
For these memories are but a speck
Of the joy I’ve found, joy I’ve learned.
