I will call it rainshine
and paint rainbows in between the raindrops.
When I am thirsty
I will be thankful for all the times I had water
and not dwell on the sandpaper of my tongue.
When my heart beats out of time
I will say I dance to my own rhythm
until others dance with me.
And when you need me
I will wrap you in the finest of silks
-- silk, because it's strong
just like you
And I will be there.
So I swear.
