When Will The Drought End

Storm clouds paint 
the sky grey, 
an ominous rumble 
heralds a downpour
I think of
the welcome rain 
of summer kisses
you once showered on me
as I gathered you close
Now you stride out
to confront the elements
All I can do is
to offer you an umbrella
as you shy away
from the shelter
of my arms
cringe at the 
comforting touch
of my lips on your brow
And I wonder when
the drought will end
