Another Owner

 

Delight fills my eyes

With the sound of her hearty laugh

Ticklish to my heart

Like a kittenÕs purr

 

It fills the room 

Sweet and terribly contagious

I canÕt help but crack a smile

But it hurts so much

 

Watching her from afar

IÕm one step too late

The ring is still my pocket

Ownerless.
