The Man Who Laughed A Lot

Poem By Francis Duggan

By his family and friends he will never be forgot
He was loved by many the man who laughed a lot
The great gift of life he did embrace
And he always did have a big smile on his face

Grieved by his two teenage daughters and his friends and his wife
The man who laughed a lot he was larger than life
But the lady of luck was not on his side
In a workplace accident he tragically died

The reaper of lives on his life did call time
On his forty first year just past his physical prime
Some say he died laughing this well may be
For the funnier side to most things he was one who did see

He was one who made new friends every day
Since about him he had such a likeable way
At his funeral this morning for him there was shedding of tears
Good memories of him bound to live on for years

In the helping of others always willingly inclined
The man who laughed a lot he was caring and kind
In the local cemetery his last remains lay
He was one who was known to laugh every day.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
