** This poem is in memory of Caroline Previdi, a child who was killed in the Sandy Hook shooting.
For Caroline wants you to laugh in her honor.
She wants to see you smile all the way up in Heaven.
For her and her friends are smiling every night.
When you look up in the sky the stars will shine brightly because their smiles are lighting up the sky.
For Caroline is making them laugh.
She is tickling them until they burst with laughter.
Making their hearts fill with joy with every laugh.
Now laugh until you can't laugh anymore.
Don't worry, when you are down,
Caroline will find a way to make your frown turn upside down.
