You ⚾️

The rain is unrelenting

Its cold and jagged

Thunder roars overhead and Lightning sets the sky ablaze

I can’t hear myself think

My shoes fill with water

Each step heavy and uncomfortable

“You look like you could use an Umbrella” 

I wipe away the long curly hair from my face and there you are

You smile and it makes me forget how cold I am

Your eyes make me forget that I’m drenched

You take my hand and I forget that its raining

“Lets get you out of the rain and somewhere warm”

Darling, I’ll go anywhere with you

You open the door and suddenly we’re out of the rain

“You can stay here for as long as you want”

And what if thats forever?

“Forever sounds lovely”

Darling, lovely is what you are

I’m drawn to the fireplace, I’m still shivering

You place a blanket over my damp cold body

You take your place right next to me

I don’t know how to thank you

I thought I’d be out there forever

You rest you head on my shoulder

Your eyes meet mine

My hand reaches for yours

“I don’t want you to let go, promise me you won’t”

I won’t

Now don’t you let get, that how I got out there in the first place

I wrap my arms around you

Home

“I hope its you”

Its you

“Then why are you leaving?”

Because theres something I need to do, something I need to find before I come home

To

You

“Then I’m going to love you until you’re home with me where you belong”

Belong?

“Out of the rain and home with me”

With

You
