Jealous (For Jennifer)

By Jackie Hemingway


I'm jealous of each drop of rain,

That washes away every stain;

Falling down to wet your skin,

And cleansing you from within.


I'm jealous of the sun's each ray,

Caressing you all through the day;

Shining so brightly upon your face,

And keeping you in its warm embrace.


I'm jealous of the wind in your hair,

As it gently dances through the air;

Whispered breezes coming near,

Like a lover's breath to kiss your ear.


I'm jealous of the the dark of night,

That keeps you hidden til mornings light;

Dawn will reveal the nighttime lies,

As your beauty fills the daytime skies.


I'm jealous of a love that's real,

I'm jealous of the way I feel;

I'm jealous that is plain to see,

I'm jealous of my own jealousy.
