Places we've left behind

I traced with trembling fingers
the places we've left behind
and closed my eyes to peer
into the archives of my mind. 

There he stood beside me
wondering how much to unfold
in a moment floating on a tear drop
unsure of how close to hold

And in the gathering gloom
the big rain drops quenched
the thirsty green of the hill sides
while we stood steadfastly drenched

The cold winds cut through
drawing us a little closer
just enough to feel your warmth
just enough to feel you deeper.
