One Single Impression

one-single-impression-laughter.jpgYou are the balm for my soul
My gut reaction when things turn sour
Often inappropriate
Always healing
You ring like musical bells
Inside my head
When you erupt from the ones I love
Especially the belly version from a child
When you are absent
From my life
The days are dark and dreary
Seeming to drag on forever
When you are present
Each and every day
Is a more precious gift
Of beauty and grace
