While waywardly wandering toward
the whispering willows weeping their
leafy tears into the sleepy stream,
i remember: i'm wet when i fall into you.
Dry in your absence; no longer whole.
Withering until you sway me with your caress
and your wind lifts me once more.

awww, this is so pretty and encapsulates such a nice moment. i really like the way all our lines fit together (maybe tuck "the" into the next line?)
