The Story of Laughter and Gloom



The laughing one
The flower princess
The woodland trespasser
Eyed, there, lurking in the shadows
The quiet one
The watching one
The somber one
Then he vanished
Years passed
The laughing one aged
She shed her fairy wings for pencil skirts
And a bun
The somber one grew tired
World weary he was
The glamour of living was rubbed away.
But fate told him to chin up
Dancing in the light of a small candle flame
Destiny waited for him
In the form of a laughing girl
Brought together delight beyond measure
Knowing that he was there
She for him
He for her
In his quiet strength
Fearing nothing
Darkness stole her smile
She shattered into pieces
The laughing one
The fragile one
But the strong one picked up the broken pieces
He placed them in his heart
And there they healed and became whole again.
The laughing one learned
 To smile
