My Man

(Written March 2006, at age 18.)

walk beside me, my rain man,
hold your umbrella above my head,
drench me, instead, by touching me,
soak me along the paths we tread.

walk beside me, my sun man,
hold up a shade to my face,
brighten me, instead, by looking in my eyes,
light my heart up in every place.

walk beside me, my wind man,
hold a screen in front of me,
calm me, instead, with your whispers,
invigorate me as much as can be.

walk beside me, my invisible man,
hold my hand and never let go of it,
come so close we become one,
make me believe that you exist.
