Dreaming in the Rain

The downpour in the middle of the night woke me.

My windows were open, and the sound was almost musical

As it landed on the roof, and the window sills.

I sleepily wandered under the covers,

The sheets sliding against my bare skin

Looking for you.

I thought I heard you breathing,

I thought I could faintly smell your scent in the air..

I thought I felt your heat, warming the bed.

It was a dream I had

In the cool dark rain

That you were with me.

What wondrous things we might have done,

If you were there.

The downpour faded away

And I melted back into a contented sleep

Hoping for another dream of you.
