Dear laughter, my faithful companion.
You did well today.
I salute you.
I congratulate you.
My bosom friend, I felt your warmth today.
I witnessed your faithfulness towards me.
You covered my nakedness.
You shielded me from shame.
If it weren’t for you, I would be exposed.
My wretched estate would be plain for all to see.
My brokenness laid bare.
The ruins of my heart stripped naked before all.
Thank you, my savior.
You hid me well.
They only saw the gleeful mask.
The real me, you hid so well.
I am forever grateful, the dearest companion of my wrecked estate.
