Only the Beginning
by Fujita Toji

I stepped out of my car--
Just another stop--
Still looking for you;
Still filled with hope.

I walked across the streets alone,
Searching for your voice,
But everywhere I looked,
I saw nothing but rain.

I stood under a lightpole,
My hands in my pockets,
Being drenched in rain,
Just watching and waiting.

Far off in the horizon,
I saw your figure.
I ran towards it,
But you weren't there.

There was a pain in my heart
As I trembled in the cold,
Walking sadly back to my car.
My journey has just begun.
