Returned Haiku

Thank G-d for returns
like the return of this blog
familiar yet new

Sometimes I'm scared of
the love I get in return
for the love I give

If you let me go
I might have returned to you
Now we'll never know

Smiles are returned
Guaranteed, no questions asked
In an ideal place

Kindness is when you
expect nothing in return
highest of the high

We come from dust and
one day to dust we'll return
and in!

When soldiers return
their lives take on a hard turn
as they turn to us

What we say and do
will return to us one day

Return to true friends
They will not disappoint you
if you are honest

Coming or going
We are always returning
Again and again

ALL haiku prompted by the word "return" via
