"There I sat looking out for the rain that didn’t fall,

Listening for the birds that didn’t chirp,

Waiting for the letter that didn’t arrive.


There I sat pining for the love I could never have,

Craving for the passion I could not rouse,

Longing for the life I could not live.


There I wept alone and forlorn,

Regretting fate's chances that had passed me by,

Remembering those who had too soon said goodbye!


There I sat for infinity with closed eyes,

Tiny cascading droplets caressing my cheeks,

Taking me by sweet surprise!


There I sat with a smile touching my lips,

Humming in my ears, tickling my soul,

Feeling the love within, making it mine!"
