I watch

as the rain runs its hands

all over your body

while a gentle wind

wraps you in its embrace

-all the while covering your face

in blue leafy kisses

I watch

as the cold decides to

put away its teeth

-just for you

I watch

as the sun comes out

to towel you dry and warm you with

it’s face- taking care not to burn

All this I watch

-with intensifying jealousy
