However you do it, just laugh for awhile.
A chuckle is good for the soul, so I hear,
Filling the saddest of hearts up with cheer.
Chortle, titter, grin and tee-hee,
Whatever your style, just do it with glee.
It's sure to lighten your load for awhile,
And maybe help to make someone else smile.
Cackle, chuckle, laugh till you roar,
It's a method that's proven to make your heart soar.
And yet I would warn you to use it with care,
For laughter is catching and quick to ensnare.
It sneaks up so slowly you might let it in
And not even notice till you start to grin.
And then without knowing the how or the why,
You erupt into giggles and tears fill your eyes.
Your friends glances over and starts to tee-hee,
Then others fall prey to the laughter disease.
So when you feel like laughing, use caution, take care,
It makes a heart glad, but it's catching - BEWARE!
