Poem: Flowers and Laughter

Many of us ask what do we do
Our lives are changed too

Mourning our old lives is hard
Yet life has handed us a new card

How do we play this hand we’ve been dealt
And gird up our pants with this new belt

One day at a time is the only way through
Each day gives a chance to do something new

To find hope and joy all around
Despite the turmoil which abounds

To find laughter and fun
When all is said and done

To find little things which mean a lot
Like flowers and laughter in one pot

What are your thoughts?
