|I could feel the wet, cool pelting against my skin as I spun around on the merry-go-round.
The whole world whipped wildly around my head and made it all one green-blue mass.
It was a glorious day; even with the rain the sun shone through the clouds and trees.
My shrieking laughter and the sensation took me back to my childhood days.
A time when I ate too much candy, stayed in the rain too long, and played all day.
However, I wasn’t a child any longer; in more ways than one I had grown up.
From a short, pig tailed girl, who knew exactly what she wanted, to an indecisive teenager.
The thoughts of my childhood vanished when he put his hand on mine.
Then through the rain he whispered “I love you,” into my ear.
This wiped away all my lingering thoughts, fears, and made me smile to myself and allowed me to enjoy life even while spinning in circles.
