My mother's laugh is obnoxious.
It's oddly pitched
And I think it sounds funny.
When I was young
I tried not to laugh like her.
Now in my twenties
I discover that I laugh a lot like her.
This depresses me quite a bit
But I know that when I have grown old
And my mother has gone
I will find solace in my laugh
Because it will be her laughing
And I will know that she is still with me
And that she shares all my joys.

Wonderfully Succinct
Your premise is perfectly rendered, Persephone. A lovely read and a tender thought.

My Mother's Laugh
Beautiful. It touched my heart. I too am cursed and blessed with my mother's obnoxious, staggered laugh! I hope it will be a long time before it's all I have left to cling to. Thank you for changing my perception.
Peace and Blessings
