Under the open sky
In the middle of a downpour
I said your name.
The drops suspended mid air
And there was a complete cessation of noise.
I looked up expecting a bridge overhead
But instead found you rolling through my mind.
In that moment it became clear...
If only I say your name
My world will wait for you.
As if in applause of my realization
A flock of birds rose into sight
Then came in tight
A heartbeat. A pulse. A sign.
You. It's you. It's you.
