Poem: In the Rain...

A friend shared a poem with me over the weekend and it was really good - I haven't been given permission to share it but it sparked some thoughts and led to my writing a poem, inspired by the images he'd created in my imagination.

In the rain...

Pulled close into your arms,
I feel your strength, 
warm through your shirt,
against my rain-wet cheek

you are strong in your weakness,
stronger for sharing it with me
holding me close to your heart 
as if to protect me from it,

yet sharing, the pain
feeling it wash off us
into the water at our feet
as we stand together -
pretending to be caught in the rain.
