And allow memories of joys gone by
to tickle your belly.
Don’t be afraid to laugh.
The shadow cast across your today
may very well shift tomorrow.
The sky is a testimony that things
don’t have to remain the same.
Ignite life into your toes
and get your feet moving.
Shake out the sadness.
You told yourself there wouldn’t be a today
and here you are.
Remember to smile.
And let laughter tickle warmth
into your bones.
Sway to the tingle of your laughter,
and watch how the tips of your fingers
will be coloured with life once again.
