Just happened to have a minute today...
So I sat down and opened my old notebook
The notebook full of poems, 
Poems that I wrote for you. 
Affectionate words and sad ones too
And then pure joy at having found you.

I skimmed my fingertips
on the old dried ink, 

to feel a connection 
to the happy soul who wrote them.

But only a tear trickled down 
the bridge of my nose... 

So I looked up and I saw
Tiny droplets of rain, 
Running down my window too
And it's just sad that it reminded me 
More of you.
