It's easy making laughter
I do it all day long,
To me it is so worthwhile
To make somebody smile.

Sadly life won't always flow
Like the melody of song,
Admire the ones that can still smile
When everything goes wrong.

Trouble tests your heart
And it comes more through the years,
The smiles that are worth
More than anything on earth
Are the smiles that shine through tears.

Toe, when you are funny, you are hilarious...
but when you are serious, you are downright
charming, kind, courteous,
and compassionate...

This has always been one of my very favorites... and never fails to touch my heart. *S* Both the smiles you wear and those you share are worth more so much. *S* Thank you for this heart-gift... it's beautiful!

Toe,

I can tell you from experience...unfortunately....that what you have so beautifully written here, is the truth, Mr.Toe.

I must say that I am pleasantly surprised that you are a real poet with real feelings. Its always nice to find a smartass with a heart.

*smiling at you*

A wonderfully compassionate poem. It's not easy to smile when your heart has just been torn apart. Larry is an example of one who can keep moving forward with grace and a smile, even when the weight of tragedy is heavy on his shoulders. Thank you for sharing this tender piece.

Dear Big Toe,
Awww you have exposed the truth, you got class. It's time for some more gigglin' and know they mingle well with tears in honor of a very vivacious girl. Bless you.

Toe,
Yup. You still crack me up! And I'm especially glad for that today. Thanks.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
