You wanted it perfect
Ive no doubt you tried
Who could have predicted
The sudden storm
So brief yet so potent
And so it became
My most memorable moment

We agreed wed meet
In the gazebo in the park
No more fateful encounter
Than the Empire State
Meeting of Cary and Deborah
Who could have predicted
The sudden storm
So brief yet so potent

And so you appeared
In the minute it took
To cross the park
You were soaked
Hair, so carefully coiffed
Hanging down
Limply blowing

It should have been me
The storm ill-timed
It should have caught me
But it was you
Suddenly you with shy embarrassment
Suddenly me with soft caress
Kissing raindrops from your cheek
You were never lovelier
Then that day
With the wind and the rain
In your hair



The first duty of love is to listen.

Lovely words - poor girl who probably didn't want to look like a drowned rat.  It is what is within the heart that counts and you have captured the true meaning.

You have a heart of gold.  Where else but love could a person be cherished when at less than perfection.

Great read-thanks.

It is within those imperfect moments we find love. How well you expressed this.

Thank you all -
you're much too kind -
I can only say -
I'm most grateful -
that my muse -
delivers words that sustain me
and adds to the pleasure you find
