I know you’ve been

but I didn’t hear you arrive

and you’d left

before I’d had the chance

to welcome you


I found your gifts

but by then it was too late

to ask you more about them

for they didn’t seem to come

with any instructions


I’ve laid out a welcome mat

and prepared my questions,

keeping your gifts close to hand,

to be sure I’m ready next time –

please come again
