I liken happiness as I would
to my best friend and soul mate.
When she leaves my life,
she announces her departure loud & clear.
There is no mistake; she has gone away.
But when she re-enters my life, she's silent.
Like a game of Guess Who?, she sneaks up
behind me & taps me on the shoulder.
I always turn around in total surprise
and amazement; then embrace her too tight.
I don't care where she has been,
I'm just content she's returned to me.
