Apology for Rain

The way a flower apologizes for the rain
With the colors of washed away pain
While I sit here with words refrained

The way the ocean recedes without the shore
A constant reminder that you can't love me more
Than you did yesterday or the day before

The way your eyes and hands consume me
Without words,
the kiss that happened unexpectedly
Are the reasons I can't let go gracefully
