Happiness - A Short Story

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.

    What an ode of loss and return. The words really emoted your feelings quite well. I found myself excited by the "tap on the shoulder" and couldn't wait to see if it was her. Very nicely done. Great read...

    Indeed we are both contemplating happiness, Karen. I like your characterization here. Thank you for stopping by. As to form, might it be Personification? or even simpler, a Narrative? I've found the Forms of Poetry resource, over on the left here, to be very helpful and informative.
