    I am thinking of you tonight
    as your whispers are carried on
    teardrops from a clouded sky to
    find rest in the dew soaked grass

    I look for you in the clouds hoping
    that the blue grey tint will form as
    an outline of you when the breeze
    grows stronger during the afternoon;

    I want to close my eyes and yet
    I know that one blink would
    erase the moment I saw you in
    the gentleness of the breeze;

    I am thinking of you tonight
    as I rest in the tall grass just to
    allow the teardrops from your
    face find rest in my embrace.

    Dnommo, this is the very definition of beautiful. Very romantic and compassionate. What else can I say, everything about this is just so...good. From the flow to the tone to the message itself.
    "I want to close my eyes and yet
    I know that one blink would
    erase the moment I saw you in
    the gentleness of the breeze;"
    This is my absolute favorite, talk about not wanting to lose the moment.

    I am in no way a romantic, but this is a truly beautiful scribe, I've already read it 3 times. The visuals are so pituresque. Great piece.
