The day the laughter died

Written in honour of Robin Williams – a true entertainer that had a huge impact on this girls childhood. I can’t think of a favourite childhood movie that didn’t have him in it. From Aladdin, Flubber, Hook to Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting and even more recently Happy Feet.

 

The day the laughter died…

shock waves and sadness

a piece of my youth – gone

I always thought Peter Pan lived forever.

Sparkling blue eyes

decades of smiles

like ripples across an ocean

throngs of characters

transcending time

always and forever

caught inside life’s hour glass

trying to break free

a special kind of magic

never before and never again

will our hearts warm

like you warmed them

our genie

our doctor

our captain

remember

turn at the second star

nanu nanu.
