Laugh Through – 10 NaPoWriMo

Day 10 word pairing prompt for NaPoWriMo. Daily happenings often inform a poem. We really did have a funeral today noticing the laughing at the photo board, in speeches, between tears, and during the meal after closure. Gone but not forgotten is “Laugh Through.”

10 Laugh Through

Laugh Through

Funeral today.
What I love about funerals
is they are not all sadness and crying.
There is remembering
and stories
and laughing.

We hold up this person
in gratitude,
We hold the laughter shared with them
in our hearts.

With each passing friend
our heart fills.
Feeling warmth even through loss.
