Longing…..for you!

Sitting by the window, I am watching the rain fall,

Fond and warm thoughts of you start flooding my mind

And as I look deeper, you are all I find.

Each drop whispers your name as they kiss the groundwater

So soft, tender and as sweet as an angel’s song.

As night falls, I step out to embrace the rain…

To feel the droplets caressing, fondling and tickling my torso.

I wish you were beside, wrapping me with your love.

Knowing the lump in my throat and water down cheeks

Alas! Wish you were wiping and kissing them off me.
