You are elusive

Not quite approachable

Thin as air

Insubstantial as an autumn mist

Or the thoughts that flee from this pen’s capture

Every now and then you pause

Turn the full force of your smile on me

Hold out your arms

Those moments never last

But they’re enough to keep me addicted

To happiness
