Queen Bee

Here's what I am going and willing to do 
Make a pinky promise and swear an oath 
unto both me and to you 
Then spend the rest of every second of my entire life
Trying my level best to make you laugh 

Because if have nothing else or lesser gift I have 
to offer this world 
Listening to the sound of your laughter 
Would mean my life would have at least not 
amounted to nothing 
And I would then gladly leave or pass away 
With a smile beaming from ear to ear upon on my face 

As long as I am stuck permanently with the image 
Of your smile in your face and laughter in my ears 
Making me cry the happiest joyful tears
I have ohh so missed dearly out on sadly for 
way too many years since I have been gone
No matter whether those reasons be deemed in future
To have been judged right or in fact wrong 

As the future finally looks brighter than the past
at last 
By the mere prospect of waiting to see you in 
person simply smile and hear your most infectious 

As all my heart and my woes slowly melt away 
like ice cream dripping down a cone 
On a clear mid - summer's  heatwave infused day 
Taking a stroll through central park watching the people 
I pass bask in the rays of the sun 

Happy and confident in the thought I don't have to 
tell them or anyone else for that matter 
Of the healing and medicinal powers of laughter 
can do for and on the mind and the soul

Apart from to say there is nothing quite like it
to fix and fill a hole and make one feel hole again
