There was no inkling not a clue

That this was the day I’d meet you

The clouds had opened and unfurled

A torrential downpour on the world

You’d been caught in it’s wake

As I walked in I saw you shake

The umbrella had given up the ghost

And lay broken and could not boast

It had done it’s job to keep you dry

You heaved a sigh and from your eye

A look of amusement at your plight

Even though you looked a fright

I offered you a handkerchief, dry

In me you’d found an instant ally

We talked and walked and talked more

As we wandered from store to store

Waiting for the storms ferocity

To die down to escape its velocity

We shared a coffee and our time

A memorable beginning to our lifetime
