Days and Counting

                                            I was a stranger, 
     The first day I was a stranger, the day I met you was serendipity
             The second day I became your friend, I had an epiphany.
     The third day I wanted to see you, not as a stranger but as an admirer

              The Fourth day I became an admirer of your personality.

                     Days had gone by, than came months and years.

                                       Life is short that I know,
 Of what I don’t know, is how I had to live by all these years without knowing you!

                                Autumn came and left without good byes.
                           Spring came and said, ‘have you met her yet?’

                                   Summer came as a weary man,

       And left only to leave behind the barren guilt for beauty he wasted.               

                             Winter came and she said, ‘oh. Where is she? 
                                So that the cold that I bring would let you 

                  Hold each other to keep warm; at last I am alone like thee’

                                                  Days and counting 

            Of days I could have spent and days I could have been with you.
