It could be anywhere

It could be anywhere
a street in Paris
or a coffee shop in Berlin;
it could be a kiss
after midnight
or the caress at dawn.

The heart of a flower
as it blooms
just to be broken
in a capricious
summer storm.

It could be, just anything
and anyone
that gift left on the doorstep
that makes you puzzle and frown
or the one that's delivered
with a pink cheeked smile.

Just anything, anywhere
when you feel really down
and no one loves you at all,
it could be that pick up
and turns your world
right around.

I love this little pick me up.
Made me smile :-)

Too true.

True. It doesn't have to be expensive or wrapped. It just has to be a sign that you mean something to somebody (which, though you may forget, you always do).

Bravo, Elle! Beautifully conveyed from a unique angle that resolves exceptionally in the last verse.

Something almost anyone could relate to. I find cats can do it for me on occasion. Fine writing.
