Laughter Will Ever Come So Sweetly

“Sonny”
Arvel Meardith Catchings, jr.
 Will laughter be so sweet? Without you here,
The taste and savor of life is gone.
Will smiles be so free? Without you here,
The price is too heavy to pay.
 
Is there a time to laugh? Without you here,
The beauty of laughter is gone.
Is there a time to smile? Without you here,
It’s a price I can’t afford to pay.
 
If I laugh, does that mean you’re gone?
If I smile, does that mean you’re gone?
If this life is only a dream, I am sleepwalking
And I am ready to wake.
 
As I sit here in this flesh, as I wait to grow old,
Laughter will ever come so sweetly
And smiles come so freely,
For you were more than one lifetime could hold.
