When I find you

by Sara Bharrat

Know that I have loved you longer than rain loves

the green, green leaves dancing wildly against it

to a rhythm set by the only witness,

her sister, the matchmaker wind.

Like her, I have loved you as a tiny seed

floating, gently, gently to the tune of sister wind,

before finally fluttering to mother earth

on a final note, carrying a soft cry for life.

Like her, I watch, I listen, waiting for the moment

when I must rise and fall just for you

with the first, life giving touches of love.

Know that you will feel me again and again,

and you will grow, reaching and reaching to meet me

for an almost endless dance in the wind.
