If Only… - Poem by Mousheera Shafik

Every night I look through my window,
And I see these drops of rain falling,
I wish that I could espy your shadow,
I wish that you could hear me calling,
If only you could see me,
If only you could feel me,
If only I could peer at your smile,
If only you could stay for a while,
But still your shadow didn't even appear,
And um still standing here with my tear,
A dropp of tear like these coming down from the sky,
Millions of drops that'll alter to joy, if only you could just pass by.
