Only yesterday

Only yesterday
i chanced upon
the wellspring of my life
only yesterday
i set eyes on
the darling of my life

he asks me what i derive
from just looking at him
my lips part in answer
in silence my eyes brim

i run my palms through his hair
and hold him tight to my chest
he's that one rain i pine for
in him i find love, in his arms, i rest.
