It was the month of May, it was a rainy day

Hiding beneath her umbrella, with a smile on her face

Staring at the sky, as if the rain was out of place

All alone in an empty field, looking at nothing but rain

Without a word being said, I understood she was in pain

The gentleman in me, approached her with caution

To see if I could lighten the burden with idle conversation

As she turned to face me, time stopped and it all went black

For a moment, there was only her, but then time found its way back

We spoke about the weather, the rain and its beauty

All the while, I was thinking “she was it for me”

We played the game accordingly, a solid foundation was set

We both knew, this was a chance at love, most never get

Our first anniversary, I took her right here

A romantic picnic, under a sky that was clear

We danced to the wind, caught in a moment of peace

As we kissed to a sunset, that we both hoped would never cease

Year in and year out, we came back to this one spot

We found happiness, both of us appreciated what we got

So in year 5, I waited for the sky to turn red

And as it did “I love you” was all I said

I placed the ring in the tall grass, and told her “you make me happy”

“Pick that up, and I will do the same for you for all eternity”

Without a moment of hesitation, she grabbed the ring

Said “YES” and it felt like moments after, we had the wedding

But thanks to wedding plans, work and the honeymoon

Dinner parties, movie times and prepping a baby room

We weren’t able to visit our favourite place

Life no longer wanted to move at our pace

We never had kids, she wasn’t able to

It was after that news, a nightmare came true

Lung cancer crept in her body and made it its home

There is no pain equal to the feeling of knowing you will be alone

Every moment I had, I was by her side

She engraved her last words in my soul, when she died

“I will be there, with a smile to sky, hiding in the rain”

“I will be there, asking the wind every day to whisper your name”

And then she smiled her last smile

Now every year I sit here, staring at a sky that refuses to rain

It was here that we met, and to me it was here that I lost her

Because only here, does the wind whisper HER name

I miss you
