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.
