The Visitor

You can't have me permanently.
Nobody can.
When I arrive you feel sunshine,
My warmth envelopes you.
You take my presence as proof...
If I'm there, your feelings must be real!
You think you could never have too much of me,
But I always sense when I've overstayed my welcome.
I leave, allowing you quieter moments.
You reflect calmly as you search for meaning. 
Occasionally these moments bring tears.
I  hope that I will not be away for long.
I do worry you won't remember me.
But, when I round the corner
You always recognize me.
How could you not?
I am your smile!


  1. I think this is one of your very best poems, even though most of them are wonderful.

  2. It's great, Stephanola.


  3. Dear Stephanie. Yes. Peace.

  4. I love this, mainly because it made me smile.

    As did your Birthday wishes. :)
