If Only She Could Stay (Linking Pin Sonnet) - Poem by Joseph Spence Sr

If Only She Could Stay (Linking Pin Sonnet)

She came into my life with a sweet smile
Smile touching my core of existence
Existence gave up without my resistance
Resistance to her soul staying for awhile
Awhile, like a star rests in the universe
Universe with my soul seeking a nice wish
Wish for her to make me a succulent dish
Dish to which we royally dined and smiled

Smiled like a genie on a carpet ride
Ride where she glowed with love, in her time and space
Space where my fingers touched her smiling face
Her smiling face touched my heart as she glides
Gliding away like she came with a smile
Smiling—if only she could stay awhile!
