It's Okay to Smile

A Poem By Hannah W. // 11/18/2008

It's okay to smile,
It's okay to laugh
even though the ones we love
from this life and world do pass

It's okay to dance
feeling music and joy,
even though we know that death
is something we can't avoid

It's okay to love
and give your heart away,
even though you know it might
be broken to pieces someday

It's okay to grin,
to be happy isn't wrong,
even though the ones we love
from our sides have now gone

It's alright to cry,
it's okay to weep,
But do not forget that they still live
even when they've gone to sleep

It's okay to smile,
it's okay to laugh
becuase we know how short time is
before our lives will pass



this was really great. i liked the first part the best. altho after losing someone i loved dearly, it doesn't feel at first okay to smile or laugh for awhile for fear people will think you don't care, you didn't love.
a creative mind never ceases for long in thinking.

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief


It's a good thing that that was a short poem or I would have been bawling. Someone I loved very much died a few days ago and I have been devestated I have felt like noone else cared at all but maybe they know that it's OK to laugh. This was like it spoke right to me. Thanks

...and that's all I'mm gonna say! For now...
