He declared his love in the rain,soft,
moist, falling gently. I stood there
lightly brushing drops from my hair,
hands linked, promises made,
we dreamed of the life ahead.
The years passed, still hand in hand
we walked together, buffeted by the wind,
blown this way or that, the only certainty
our love for one another.
Now alone, frail faltering, mist swirling
I think I see you, long to touch you
if only just for a minute “Let me come
with you, walk through the mists of time
to the place where our life began.”
