Two days ago in a white fluffy dress

the air was so strong

that my dress lifted and

twirled the wind.

It was not just any wind,

it was my friend the wind.

The wind was my friend because

it was singing a song,

it smelled like roses

all over again.

The wind gave me hope

the wind gave me heart-shaped love.
