I remember sitting in a corner on fall days like this.
The cold wind was biting, yet it felt so inviting
To curl up all alone in my own little space.
Sometimes I would read
Or just sit and imagine
That we were together,
Alone in some cabin,
Taking refuge in each other from the merciless weather
That threatened to swallow us whole.
I didn’t know you, and you didn’t know me,
But I would imagine myself in your arms
I didn’t know your face, but I had felt your embrace
Sheltering me from those storms.
When I went inside, I had to leave you behind,
Though you’d comforted me in the rain.
And I would wait a while until I could smile
Finding myself in your arms once again.
