His giggles echoing behind the couch

Turn around and offer him a playful look

Which he picks up with another grin

And another round of laughter

He peeks, sneaky, stealth fully,

Trying to catch you off guard

You play along, look ahead

Pretend you don't see anything

Coming from the side near your arm rest

But as soon as his abundant dark curls start rising

You look at him and his eyes catch yours

He ducks back down with another fit of giggles

The very sound puts a smile on your face

And your dark day touches light
