Like There Was No Yesterday

An August Sunday afternoon Clouds captured The lands of the sky Rain decided to reign A loud sound was heard Followed by silence Fans froze TVs fell asleep Roads became rivers Parks turned into ponds High waters and low batteries Nothing to do and Nowhere to go So she sat By a window alone Gazing at a puddle And at an old man Struggling his way through it Evening fell and a knock At the door was heard Not a familiar sound She draped a scarf And opened the door To see a familiar face Not seen once Since March When they parted ways Lips broke into A habitual smile But questions peeped Through her eyes She offered him A towel His clothes from her cupboard And a cup of hot chocolate They sat by the window And looked at the skies At the trees that swayed And then at each other Tears fell and were accompanied By answers composed Of not a single word And they had A conversation long overdue Speaking entirely With eyes and hands Lips so quiet That all was heard The rain fell like it had Nothing to hold back The rain fell like there Was no yesterday She dropped the scarf He drew the curtains And at last they spoke In the language of love And told each other Everything.
