We met in a rainstorm Our eyes full of rain And hope. We scrunched together Our pace almost matching. We laughed at the puddles The thunder And the lightening. Their power could not compare To the storm that was brewing between us. The rain was cold But the fire inside our souls Burned so bright It kept us warm And lit the way. I could have gotten lost In your gaze Your smile Your laugh. But instead we walked on. Trudging through puddles Our eyes never meeting Our shoulders barely brushing But our souls already intertwined.
