>a smile slipped softly across my face several times today.

>each time
i remembered yesterday

it was raining all day
we watched the world fall asleep

i held you at night
breathing in the scent of your hair whenever i awoke

you played with my fingers
whispering tender words in my ear

the raindrops, intense and pelting
your face, shy and truthful

and as i write this
a smile slips softly across my face.
