Through the rainy window, all the world runs together.
Colors and lines and time.

My mind drifts.
And then I find it, wandering after you.

It follows you back, years from here,
To that day you held my hand
While the lazy afternoon stretched out under the Texas sun.

My dress was white.

You smiled at me, so soft and so sure,
And squeezed my fingers.

I squeezed back and then kissed you on the outside corner of your eye,
As I would again and again, for years to come.
