It Rained That Day

Soft autumn rain ... cascading over brightly colored cherry blossoms, releasing a sweet scent of aromatic aphrodisiac A fragrance of springtime love blowing in the gentle autumn wind Our two hearts made a vow that day We promised to fall in love anew each day all over again Fall madly in love a thousand times every twenty-four hour spin As the light, misty rain came down, it meet our joyous laughter rising up to the clouds Two lovebirds being purified, two souls now joined together as husband and wife It rained gently that beautiful day The maple and evergreen trees greeted us with a mélange of bright promise, of an ever evolving love that would last a lifetime We beheld the colors of change all around us, holding hands as our lives were changing as well Upon the lifting of her white veil, our eyes kissed and our lips looked for no more words than two I do After a pregnant pause, we added another ... I love you Then we ran outside, and frolicked like two little children Me tugging at her beautiful, African zakiya dress, she tossing aside my African kente vest And when we pressed our cheeks together, the soft autumn rain began to fall ... and we too were falling more in love I remember so well, how it rained that day How gently the autumn rain fell

The simplicity of memory on those truly special moments, Freddy, ingrain themselves into what becomes a tapestry of beauty in our lives. I hope she reads your poetry. You share so much of yourself in this. Personally, I have difficulty sharing my feels with others, that's why I write.
