Mr. Platypus

by Charles J Hannan

You can do wonderful things
By making people laugh
And once in a while
Someone comes along
To brighten your day
Like a song that is sung just right
Or a good memory
Of a beautiful day

You had a way
To do just that
It seems so simple
But you made it clear
And timeless
Bringing us to tears
of joy

I never thought
That now those tears would be reversed
And my laughter from you

Only for a little while though
Because I still have
That one thing you gave me
The mother of all cures
