Waiting for you

I was standing drenched,
Drenched in raindrops,
Looking upwards,
Looking for you,
Waiting to be comforted.
Not with a hug or anything,
Only with the consolation,
That you are there for me.
As umbrellas fluttered,
In tandem with the raindrops,
In the mercy of the wind,
I stood still, waiting for you-
Under the umbrella,
He held out for me.
"You are drenched in tears"
He said. I dismissed him-
"These are the raindrops,
Your umbrella cudn't shield me from.".
He said nothing. Just about smiled,
The smile that was heavenly.

I looked upwards again
With still some hope in my eyes
Coz I knew, you would come
The night passed by
By morning I was already tired
Tired of waiting for you
But he was not
Holding his umbrella in onehand
And caressing me with the other
The entire night
For he believed
I would understand him one day

I believed you would come to me one day, God.

Day in and day out
I waited
In the scorching sun
I waited
In the chilling wind
I waited
I waited and waited
You didn't come
But he was there, smiling
Alllll this while

I asked him to leave
I wanted none, other than you
And I feared, I cud fall in love
With someone other than you
He left, with tears
And huge dollops of love
In his still beaming eyes
It was not long
Before I realised

  3. "I feared, I cud fall in love With someone other than you", those lines are really very well written and you have successfully put emotions.
