Warmer Weather

A Poem By Madeline // 3/31/2016

you're an unbelievable breath of beauty
hair and arms and legs
the way you lean on
windowsills and
smile against pain
it seems like
you're constantly forging
onward soldier
while I stand by
and wait
for the storm to pass
the clouds to clear but
I've realized that
they'll stay
no matter how I close my eyes
and wish for
warmer weather
while you dance on ahead
kicking puddles astray
hands out
and no umbrella
you just let it
wash all over you
but
I like staying dry
so I linger beneath the
overhang
and watch the
water rise
