The sun gleams down hard
I squint my eyes to see
dry leaves and parched land
it is as still as it could be.
Just then a gust of wind picks up
blows away all despair
I can see you smile at a distance
and feel your coming in the air.
The drizzle turns to a downpour
you choose to stay a while
I listen to you,mesmerized by
your kind eyes and your gorgeous smile.
We talk for hours together
your sweet voice against the pane
the rain washes away all dirt
and the world is new again.
Slowly the words die down
as we share things,said and unsaid,
and retire for the night
with a light drizzle and the star gaze.
Time flies and the dawn breaks
still in dreams, I refuse to wake
while you pack and hastily leave
too busy to even tell.
The sky is clear now
the clouds having long gone.
Ah! I know this feeling
I know it too well.
This is how I have known things to be
I take comfort in the familiarity,
Once again I went to bed with a dream
only to wake up to reality.
I am glad you came by
though you didn't belong to this hour,
you were just another one of them
you were just a passing shower.
He & She... An Everlasting Friendship...
