The Water Did Warn Me

Greeted by the falling water,

at last, today, the fountains returned.

Water spewing once again,

but why today? Why so soon?

Falling water never stopped-

a leaping stream fast to fall.

Each droplet was preparing me

for a day of endless ups and downs.

I met someone new today!

She was direct and to-the-point.

But I’ll be honest, I needed that.

The girl pointed out my writing’s flaws-

then she stopped and said no more…

Ouch.

But she helped me in another way,

and now I’m not sure how to thank her.

So I said thank you.

Her words did hurt at first.

That pain was of no use to me!

I asked her if she’d walk with me.

Strolling down the sidewalk,

I asked her for future guidance-

a good hour later, we hugged.

Why are you telling me this, I asked.

You remind me of someone, she said back.

You remind me of my brother.
