Prompt for June 5: Timely

Standard

[Prompt from http://daily-writing.blogspot.com/ .]

Before yesterday, life was a desert.
All I knew was dryness, heat, and sand.
There was nothing for miles save dune
Of a bleak yellow white, reflecting
Sunlight. That was until you came,
My blissful dew of night. You chilled
The scorching heat with one touch,
Gave the withered plants life with
One kiss from your wet lips. You were
Rain when I thought all the water
In the world had dried up into dust.
You were what kept me going
All throughout the dark. You
Came not a minute too soon,
For without you I would have
Shriveled into bone and sand.
