Be Happy! Poems

The Sound of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty
for laughter spreads the very gift of joy

That people they are drawn to happy people
is not that hard for to understand why

Since everybody wishes to be happy
and laughter it spreads happiness around

And only the heartless could not like the sound
of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

Than laughter there is no more happy feeling
laugh and the World laughs with you seems so true

But if you feel sad and for yourself
feeling sorry the saddest person in the World is you

Even your friends would rather not be with you
if they see you as one who worship gloom

The happy people attract people to them
and in their presence happiness does bloom,

The sound of laughter sends out laughter ripples
it is a sound one always loves to hear

And laughter it gives rise to smiling faces
and never fails to fill the cup of cheer

The sad one who feels comfort in self pity
is the one others do not wish to know

But if you are one who laughs away your worries
your friends in numbers seem to grow and grow

And who could not but love the sound of laughter
to it there always is a joyful ring

It seems to send happiness out in ripples
it is a joyful and infectious thing.
