Poem #5 -- Visitor
If not for Girl Scout cookie sales,
She wouldn't come back to see me,
Wouldn't come telling her theater tales,
Wouldn't help bring back the memory
Of times when life was easier:
A whole world contained in one room
With one set of memories linked to one teacher.
From across my desk, I watch her bloom.
