I hear your name when it rains

I hear your name when it rains

A Poem by terry smith

I was so excited 
to meet you 
didn't know 
you wouldn't 
be there 
didn't know 
how I was 
going to 
reach you 
this pain 
is more than 
I can bear

all I know 
is that I 
need you 
it was 
your eyes 
I hoped 
they would share

I know 
that you 
need me 
it's a wound 
that we have 
to share

I will be 
whatever 
you need 
me to 
two human 
crutches 
together 
this weight 
we share

i agree with Courtney...those lines struck me too...that is so creative to use that metaphor...
we don't want to feel that someone holds us up...that we can't do it on our own...
but if the give is equal...if we both need it and want it...the support shared is love.
